Facebook Wishes To Be Relevant In News, Ready To Pay To Get Back Publishers

Facebook is reaching to behemoth news publishers expecting to lock licensing agreements to republish news content and stories, the media reports. The agreements might be worth millions of dollars for each publisher, with Facebook supposedly providing almost $3 Million per year for licensing deals for a number of outlets. Amongst those in early meetings are Disney-controlled ABC News, Dow Jones, Bloomberg, and The Washington Post.

As per the report, Facebook aims to add these articles as fraction of devoted news segment its rolling out sometime this winter. Publishers might ink contracts lasting as long as 3 Years in some situations, and they might get control over how articles come into view on Facebook and whether users might get only snippets, such as some text and headline, before being sent to the website of the publisher. The planned terms stand in contradiction of Apple’s method to Apple News Plus (its magazine-focused, new plan with a dubious income share).

The outcome of a successful courting by Facebook, on the other hand, might be a revitalization of the huge amount of referral traffic that the firm employed to drive to media companies and news publishers before it started downgrading websites pages and non-individualized kinds of News Feed material a few years back.

On a related note, Facebook claims it was not its job to ban false news spread by actual politicians in the months resulting in federal election of Australia. The Labor Party of the nation encountered resounding losses this year, which some are connecting to the flood of social media posts that incorrectly claimed that the party needed to apply huge “death taxes”. In letters seen by media, Simon Milner (Facebook vice-president) informed to Noah Carroll (the outgoing Labor Party secretary) that the misinformation did not breach the community standards of the platform.
