Facebook is one of the biggest social media platforms online, which ranked 2nd to YouTube back in Q3, 2019. The company has been making some changes to its platform recently, one of which involves adding a dedicated news section to the Facebook app. The social media giant has now confirmed that the feature, previously launched in the US, will soon be launched in the UK as well.
Facebook News headed to the UK
Facebook’s UK users will get to experience the Facebook News option starting in January 2021. The tech company will also be paying publishers to host their content that’s not already on the platform. Certain details of this opportunity such as, how much do the publishers stand to make, are yet to be revealed. With the new addition, Facebook also aims to increase the reach of publishers, old and new, to new audiences, bring more advertising and subscription opportunities.
