Here is a quick way on how it works:

1) Users will have to download a new mobile app by Facebook.

2) Now users will be allowed to choose the publications they would like to read the stories. (Only selected publications have been approached for now, sources revealed)

3) Now, if there is any breaking news in case, the publication will send an alert which allows 100 characters and a URL to the article.

4) When user will click on the URL, the link will take the user to the publication’s website to read the story.
