The new features include an improved video player with an expanded clip library and added outlets for user feedback.

"Facebook’s continued growth and demographic profile makes them an increasingly important alternative outlet for viewers and fans to digest news and customize FNC content in a casual and fun environment," said Joel Cheatwood, the network’s Senior Vice President of Development.

"The enhancements and added features to our existing page will provide current FNC ‘friends’ with a better experience and attract additional Facebook members to make our page an active part of their profile."

The new video player will allow users to select clips from different categories, post them to their profile or share them with their Facebook friends. Fox News says it will also post behind the scenes video clips exclusively on the site

Fox News says it hopes Facebook users will interact with others through discussion boards, reviews, polls and photo submissions.

Fox says it chose Facebook over its parent company News Corp owned MySpace because the site is the top social network and that Facebook users are a little older and more sophisticated.
