Facebook is giving another tempting offer to visit its site with the announcement to launch the ‘news’ tab. Facebook is known for connecting people settled in different parts of the world. Since from the foundation, Facebook has taken the world with the storm, and this time is no different. The Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will launch the “news” tab in New York on Friday in the presence of CEO News Corp, Mr. Robert Thomson. The invitation of the event says, “the first look at Facebook News.”
It is expected that the news section will be standalone section contenting news and content from top brands media as well as news from the local sources. The media partner name will be disclosed at the launch event only. Some of the few media partners include the Washington Post, Buzzfeed News, Bloomberg, News Corp, and licensing fee, will be charged that will vary from large to small media houses.
