Facebook expands local news tool to 6000 cities and towns

Facebook has said it is trying to coax ’news deserts’ into bloom with the second major expansion of a tool focused on more local news and information. The company said Thursday it is expanding its ’Today In’ service to 6,000 cities and towns across the US, up from 400 in its previous iteration. Launched in early 2018, the service lets Facebook users opt into local news and information.
