Facebook, news outlets in talks about hosting articles on the social networking site

Facebook has been in discussions with nearly a half a dozen media organizations about hosting their content on the social media site, according to The New York Times.Placing content inside Facebook will allow people to access it faster, sources familiar with the plan told the Times. When people click on a link to news article in Facebook now, a separate browser window opens and they’re taken to the publisher’s website. Although the process happens in seconds, Facebook thinks it is too long, especially on mobile devices.The Times’ report didn’t offer many details on how the content would be displayed, although a format incorporating the articles could be tested in the coming months. The New York Times, BuzzFeed and National Geographic are expected to be the initial launch partners. Other news outlets Facebook approached include The Huffington Post and Quartz, an economic and business news website.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Continue reading at 'PC World'
