FB CEO Mark Zuckerberg comes up with a new idea, wishes to create a section of Facebook dedicated to high-quality news & is even willing to pay publishers some kind of licensing fee for sharing their stuff here. Mark floated this idea during his talks with Axel Springer CEO Mathias Dopfner & discussed building a FB feature so that 'users who want more news content can do that.' He didn't mention any plans to charge FB users.
