Facebook to pay 'subset' of news tab publishers

  Facebook to pay 'subset' of news tab publishers Facebook said Monday it plans to pay only a portion of the publishers whose stories appear in a news "tab" set to launch in the weeks ahead. A Wall Street Journal report earlier Monday said Facebook planned to pay about a quarter of the estimated 200 news organizations whose articles will be featured. The tab will be separate from the trademark news feed at Facebook that displays updates and content from people's friends, according to the California-based online social network.

Social media platforms were back online Wednesday evening after experiencing a bit of a meltdown earlier in the day. Facebook -owned Instagram said its issues were also fixed. "We're back !" In March, Facebook was hit with a partial outage affecting users globally that stretched for almost 24

After nearly 12 hours, Facebook has finally fixed the bugs and outages affecting Facebook , Instagram, WhatsApp users on Wednesday. If you've had trouble accessing pictures or uploading video on the platforms , the outage is the reason why. All three platforms should now be working properly.

"Earlier today, people may have experienced trouble accessing Facebook's family of apps. The issue has since been resolved, we are back to 100 percent for everyone and we're sorry for any inconvenience," a company spokesman said in a statement.

Facebook blamed "an issue in one of our central software systems" for snarling connectivity for several hours.

Many users, often wryly, took to Twitter to comment on the crash.

Downdetector, which monitors outages on the internet, said users of all Facebook platforms started having trouble at 1345 GMT.

As is often the case with these outages, this one seemed to hit randomly around the world, with some regions affected and others not.

Facebook says it has 2.45 billion active monthly users across its array of products.
