Facebook Tor

Facebook’s busy trying to woo the media lately and its latest move is a new partnership with ABC that will see the news network film one-minute long newscasts exclusively for Facebook users.

The new segment, dubbed “Facecast,” will be uploaded to ABC’s Facebook page every weeknight and offer a round-up of top stories, trending topics and more, from behind the scenes at the ABC news studio.

Facecast will use Facebook’s video platform and is optimized for mobile users.
