Facebook (FB.O) has created a newswire tool tailored to journalists, part of a broader effort to be the go-to place for conversation for its 1 billion users.

Called FB Newswire, it is designed to help journalists share and embed newsworthy Facebook content that is made public by its members such as photos, status updates and videos.

“News is finding a bigger audience on Facebook than ever before, and journalists and media organizations have become an integral part of Facebook,” wrote Andy Mitchell, director of news and global media partnership at Facebook, in a blog post announcing FB Newswire.

Facebook is also providing a Twitter feed, @FBNewswire.
