With the expanding number of users, I believe Facebook could be a viable publishing platform. As the article states Twitter has been the recent platform but because Facebook is becoming more public, this means a shift is taking place. Journalists prefer Facebook because research is easier to document and there’s no limitation on the content they use, relative to number of characters. Also Facebook serves as a lead for upcoming events, the article talked about Facebook aiding the Egyptians in their revolution. The only draw-back to using Facebook as a platform is that finding sources can be time consuming and Facebook doesn’t include many targeting options.
