WSJ has roped in Dell as the exclusive advertiser for the launch sponsoring the app in its first month when its free. Afterwards, the app will be a mix of free and subscriber-only content.
To make the news more engaging, users can also become 'editors' by curating content with the most relevance and interest to them and share it with others on the network.
"We're breaking the mold of using Facebook simply to drive traffic to our website and are now creating opportunity to engage with the Journal directly in the Facebook platform," Alisa Bowen, GM of The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, said.
"WSJ Social creates a more integrated experience for users and innovative opportunities for advertisers."
The launch of the app follows the WSJ's Live interactive video app, following the company's strategy to make Journal content available to audiences whenever they want, with experiences designed for platforms of their choosing.
