Facebook Launches News Analytics Tool in Partnership with Nielsen

Newspapers News Media Alliance targets Facebook and Google in fight against fake news
Heather Davidson | 20 July, 2017, 00:59

Facebook launched Instant Articles in cooperation with some select publishers two years ago, giving them a way to publish their stories directly to Facebook's platform. Major newspapers such as The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times have instituted metered pay plans in which readers have access to a limited number of free articles before being invited to subscribe. The news of this subscription was announced by a top Facebook executive almost a week after 2000 publishers in the U.S. formed the News Media Alliance to get an anti-trust exemption from the congress party just to negotiate over advertising revenue with digital platforms.

The idea of a paywall has been in the works for a while and is aimed at appeasing news organizations that complain they have little control over their articles on Facebook, Brown reportedly said at the conference.

Campbell Brown, who was brought on to lead Facebook's news partnerships team, spoke at the Digital Publishing Innovation Summit in New York City, according to The Street, saying "One of the things we heard in our initial meetings from many newspapers and digital publishers is that "we want a subscription product - we want to be able to see a paywall in Facebook"..."

"And that is something we are doing now".

Facebook plans to launch a subscription service for news stories, possibly testing the change as early as October. "We are launching a subscription product", he told the gathering. The news was confirmed by a top Facebook executive.

Facebook, the most used social media app that is being used by millions of people all over to interact with each other and keep in touch with our loved ones far away from us. It would also still steer readers to publication home pages to promote digital subscriptions directly to the publishers.

The idea for a paywall is based on premium and metered plans and has been in the works for a while, TheStreet said, citing Brown at the Digital Publishing Innovation Summit in NY.

It is unclear, however, how payments will be handled and if Facebook would take a cut of subscription sales.

The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have been able to build success with a paywall, but smaller and midsize outlets continue to struggle to provide in-depth analysis on topics that is worth paying for in comparison to the WSJ and NYT.
