Vadim Lavrusik: Facebook has released several updates in the past month that will affect how journalists use the platform for reporting and storytelling. Many of these new features will make it easier for journalists to distribute their content and keep up with sources of information. TechCrunch: Facebook has filed to establish FB PAC, a political-action committee intended to “give [Facebook’s] employees a way to make their voice heard in the political process,” presumably over and above voting and contributing independently to campaigns and other PACs. NYT: Facebook wants more friends. And it is willing to pay for them.
