Facebook in talks with Publishers to display their content in 'News' Tab
According to media reports, Facebook in engaged in discussion with American Publishers to display their content within the social media’s mobile app. Reportedly, the social media giant will pay these publishers millions to license their articles.

This move comes soon after reports found that Google earned up to $1.4 billion on news published on Google News.
