MSNBC Launches Breaking News Facebook Page

MSNBC announced the launch of the Breaking News Facebook Fan Page, which will provide breaking news stories from around the world from the same team responsible for Twitter account @breakingnews.

The Facebook page follows MSNBC’s acquisition of the domain in January and its takeover of @breakingnews in December.

MSNBC Digital Network president Charlie Tillinghast said:

People already use Facebook as a constant feed of news about friends, family, and the world. Since breaking news both informs and sparks vibrant discussions on the Web, the immediacy of our comprehensive, real-time service is a natural addition to the Facebook community.
