Here's The First Example Of The New Facebook News Apps

On Thursday, Facebook is expected to announce a new family of news apps that let users read and share news stories from sources like CNN, without ever leaving Facebook.

But it looks like one publisher jumped the gun.

The Wall Street Journal has just released the beta of WSJ Journal, which arranges WSJ stories in a grid on a special Facebook page.

When users click on a story, they'll see commentary about the story from other Facebook users who have read it. Users can also select specific editors from the Journal to see what stories they recommend, which will change the arrangement of stories on the home page.
