The Social Media Giant Facebook is planning to launch its own real-time news and updates notification app with a motive to lure people to stay away from its well known rival Twitter.
According to the sources, the upcoming Facebook app is indeed in development, although any specific date for the launch of the app has not been disclosed yet.

Also, there are some rumors surrounding the app, which said the new app would be called Notify.
In August, Business Insider already hinted at the app, mentioning it as an approach to allow users modify their desired alerts to get specific topics and publications. It also added that the new Facebook app will allow for 100 characters on each update and news alert, along with a news reference link that redirect the users to the main source it pulled from.
At present, the app is reportedly testing by a small group of publications in preparation for a likely launch of the app later this month.
