Facebook wants to create a section dedicated to high-quality news.

In a recent interview, Zuckerberg said that he’s willing to pay publishers for news content.

Quality journalism is critical, something they want to utilize when building the news tab.

Facebook could add a feature to allow users with a desire for more news content to allow that.

To ensure content availability and quality Facebook could potentially have a direct relationship with publishers.

Even though publishers could get paid, the news tab service will be free for users.

They’ve tried various news content models like paying for content creation to FB Watch.

They’ve also been testing the news tab internally.

However, some sources say that Facebook hasn’t yet committed fully to paying publishers.

Alternatively, they could follow an advertising revenue share model.

The news tab is expected to be up and running before the end of 2019.

Even if not ideal, some publishers would still jump at an opportunity to work with Facebook if it means increasing their revenue.
