Facebook to deliver News Corp stories

Facebook Inc’s upcoming news tab will feature headlines from the Wall Street Journal and some other News Corp media properties when it launches in fall of 2019, the social network said on Friday. The WSJ, which first reported about the deal, said news publications Washington Post, BuzzFeed News, and Business Insider have also reached a similar deal with Facebook. The news organizations will be paid a licensing fee to supply headlines, the WSJ reported.  Last year, News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch had called on Facebook to pay “trusted” news publishers a carriage fee, similar to the model used by cable companies. Certain headlines appearing in Facebook’s news section will be curated by a team of editors, while others will be selected by the company’s algorithm, according to the WSJ report.
