    Facebook has sent out push notifications to all its users announcing that it is shutting down its news notification app Notify. The app was introduced just seven months ago by the social media giant.

    In November, Facebook released the app only for iOS users. Now Facebook decided to kill it, and absorb all the supported technology into its other products.

    The company sent out notifications that read, "We're transitioning parts of Notify into other Facebook products, and the app will no longer be supported." Notify essentially collated news from around 70 publications and delivered it to users on their lock screen depending on their preferences.
