Facebook has just released a new app on its iOS mobile software, which enables users to push notifications from their preferred content makers. This new app will consolidate all the notifications and alerts on the phone into one livestream that lives on the lock screen.
Notify joins a series of other apps from Facebook, Inc such as Facebook itself, Instargram, Messenger, WhatsApp, etc. With this app, users will have to subscribe to the news publications of their choice in their preferred languages and then will be notified immediately by the publishers and content writers, of any headlines as they are published. Also, the app allows them to classify the providers of the notification in terms of stations, substations and people.
As what Facebook said in its official announcement, users will receive notifications, which is delivered right to their lock screens. Just by a quick glance, they will be kept connected to the thing that they care about. After staring at the headlines, they can swipe or tap through the Notification about which they feel excited to read the full articles or vew the full site. And if they are busy, they can add the notifications to their Saved Notifications list.
In the introductory video, Facebook explained: “Notify from Facebook sends you notifications from the sources you trust, whether you are a sports fan, a film buff, a news junkie or a little bit of everything”.
There have been more than 70 media partners registered in the launch, such as CNN, Bloomberg, Comedy Central, Vevo, The Weather Channel and Vox Media. There is no room for doubt that more and more people all around the world will register to Facebook thanks to this extremely convenient feature. According to this month’s report, there have been more than one billion people using Facebook everyday, from which 78% of Facebook’s $4.29 billion revenue earned from advertising comes from.
In order to serve global community and connect the whole world in the long run, Facebook’s team is now working to innovate more products and bring about much investment (Mark, 2015). Notify is regarded as one of the newest and the most convenient app ever seen.
Notify is now available in the United States for iOS phones. User can easily get it from the App Store.
