Facebook is bringing its news index for media and publishers to India.

The social network introduced the news index in September 2018 as a way to help determine which publishers should be included in its Ad Library for political and issue ads and content run by advertisers.

Facebook said in a blog post that news pages in the English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil and Marathi languages can follow these instructions to begin the process.

Those pages must focus primarily on reporting about current events and information, cite their sources and include dates.
