A quick look inside Facebook Signal

Late last week, Facebook announced a new tool for journalists called Signal. The tool is supposed to “to surface relevant trends, photos, videos and posts from Facebook and Instagram for use in their storytelling and reporting.”

The new tool from Facebook allows journalists to pull photos and videos taken from the scene of breaking news events.

It appears as though @realDonaldTrump and @BernieSanders are leading in terms of conversation on the world’s largest social platform.

Pope Francis is leading the conversation in terms of public figures… by a lot.

The Beatles broke up 45 years ago, yet they are still the 2nd most talked about band.
