Facebook is introducing “Manhunters,” a new way to share information in the real-time on its social network.
The new feature is aimed at letting people share more in the hopes of catching criminals.
The company said in a blog post Tuesday that “ManHunters” will allow users to “see the latest news, photos, video, GIFs and more on a personalized timeline with your friends.”
It also lets users “share photos, videos, and other content with your community on the Timeline,” which will be accessible to anyone with a Facebook account.
Users can post status updates and other updates directly on the timeline, without having to leave the app.
The new feature comes after Facebook made headlines last year for censoring the posts of people who post about the death of a loved one.
The company has since said it was not censoring users, but rather was looking to make sure its platform didn’t become a platform for hate speech.
In addition to its “Manhunter” feature, Facebook also introduced “Weird News,” a news aggregation service that has been a topic of discussion on the social network in recent weeks.
Facebook said the service will let users post articles about a topic and “show a curated feed of all the things they’ve seen or read.”
The company also unveiled its first augmented reality app, the Oculus Rift, at a tech event Tuesday.
The app allows users to see virtual environments and navigate to other users by tapping on objects in virtual reality.
