Bild Testing News Delivery Via Facebook Messenger
German publication Bild is testing news delivery via Facebook Messenger. “German tabloid Bild is experimenting with delivering news to its readers via Facebook Messenger. The first experiment is limited to ‘news, background information, and rumors regarding the transfer window of the German soccer league.’ (Soccer teams are only allowed to add players twice a year; January is one of those transfer periods.)” Considering all the wrangling German publishers have done with Google News, it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that they are out front with trying alternate delivery methods.
