Citizen journalism website Blottr has launched a new Facebook app so that news and comment can be shared without having to leave the social networking site.
Through the app, users will also be able to report news and add content directly to the Blottr site.
Blottr founder Adam Baker said: “This move signifies the importance social media plays in the distribution, discovery and consumption of news content. Our aim is to make consuming and contributing to news-related content as efficient, simple and timely as possible.
“The Blottr Facebook app socially connects people with each other through the type of content they consume and makes the discovery of our content much more fluid.”
