Facebook News, the social network’s section dedicated to journalism, launches today for all users in the United States. The product was announced by Facebook back in October but as a limited test to some users.

Out of the test phase, Facebook News allows users to react and share articles, but not to comment. Users are also able to hide articles, topics and publishers they don’t want to see.

Facebook is also now testing news video, which it didn’t have last fall, and it has introduced a local news section to Facebook News

In addition to algorithms, journalists make the selection of stories.
