The main stumbling block, according to The New York Times, is an advertising model. Facebook plans to remove all advertisements in the publication of articles. The matter is complicated by the fact that the company has no experience in the distribution of revenues with publishers. Content in exchange for traffic – this is the usual model of interaction. One solution to the problem is the placement of a single advertising message in a format selectable Facebook.

Observers note that the placement of content directly – an undeniable victory for the social network, which is not true about publishing. The new format of cooperation will transform Facebook into one of the most influential players in the media market. It is reported that the pilot test will begin in a few months. First partners become The New York Times, National Geographic and Buzzfeed.
