The purpose of this tool is to encourage news publishers to post more timely stories.

After the end date, promoted posts will remain on Facebook but will not be promoted.

Smart publishing, the third tool which will initially be available only to a limited group, will track stories users are posting to Facebook, and then will then add them to the news feeds of people who like the company.

The tools have been built in collaboration with media partners after requests came for improvements to the publishing platform.

With more and more users, especially on mobiles accessing the website, Facebook aims to use that traffic well and make it pay, the report added.
