Reports suggest that Facebook is in talks with news publishers and is willing to offer millions of dollars for the rights for publishing their content under news section that facebook wishes to introduce later this year.
It is expected that the news tab will feature alongside other core features like the news feed, Messenger and Watch, according to CNBC.
Facebook on Thursday confirmed that it is working on a news tab feature to deliver topical stories to users that will launch this fall, according to CNBC.
The whole idea of the news tab was first spotted about 4 months ago when Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook posted a video on his profile in which he discusses the future of journalism with Mathias Döpfner CEO of Axel Springer.
It’s important to me that we help people get trustworthy news and find solutions that help journalists around the world do their important work, Mark Zuckerberg wrote accompanying the video.

This year I'm hosting a series of discussions about the future of technology and society. This time I sat down with Mathias Döpfner in Berlin. He started his career as a journalist and he's now the CEO of Axel Springer, the largest publisher in Europe. We talked about the role quality journalism plays in building informed communities and the principles Facebook should use for building a news tab to surface more high quality news, including the business model and ecosystem to support it. We also discussed the privacy-focused vision I laid out for the future of social networking and the four ideas for internet regulation I published this weekend. These are important topics and I could have spent hours talking to Mathias about them. It's important to me that we help people get trustworthy news and find solutions that help journalists around the world do their important work.
