Facebook-owned CrowdTangle, a tool built for publishers to track how content spreads on social media, is announcing a product specifically designed for local newsrooms.

What's new: This version will include all of the functionality of the existing platform, but will also include five additional features, including the ability to follow conversations in public Facebook groups, a dedicated resource section for local newsrooms, state-by-state new and custom local tracking lists with first responders, and more.
