Today we’re excited to introduce Notify, a new app from Facebook that delivers timely notifications about the things that matter to you, from the sources you love, all in one place.

Notifications are becoming one of the primary ways people first learn about things, wherever they are. Notify gives people a central place to discover and receive relevant updates from diverse sources—across sports, celebrities, news, movies, music, and shopping—right on the lock screen.

On Notify, notifications are curated and published by our launch partners, which we refer to as “sources.” We think Notify creates an exciting opportunity for Facebook and partners to explore an emerging medium and develop a new platform that connects people to the information they care about the most.

Notify Lock Screen and BrowserNotify launches today with a great list of sources and we’ll continue to iterate Notify based on feedback from people and partners.
