Facebook expands news brand ‘Today In’ to regional Australia

• Today In aggregates recent news from local publishers

Facebook has announced that it is expanding its test of Today In – a new place on Facebook for local news and community information – to 10 cities in Australia including Ballarat, Bendigo, Canberra, Geelong, Gold Coast, Hobart, Newcastle, Toowoomba, Townsville and Wollongong.

Today In aggregates recent news from local publishers, upcoming events in those areas, updates from community pages, interest groups and group discussions, school announcements and weather.

Since launching earlier this year in the US, Facebook reports it has seen a positive response from people and is expanding into Australia, the first market outside the US.
