Leaked screenshots show Facebook's new "breaking news" notification app, Notify8
The app is rumored to be rolling out at the end of this month, and a number of publications are testing it out. Those familiar with Facebook's plans say that they are talking to these publications about the appropriate number of notifications that they should be sending out, as well as the different types. Once a story is posted by one of Facebook's partners, the notification would be sent out to those with the app who follow that publication, person, or topic.
Rumors about the app date back to August, when talk of a "breaking news" app for Facebook first surfaced. At the time, we were told that each notification was to contain 100 characters, and would include a URL link to the source of the story.
