Facebook has denied a media report that cited one of its senior executives as saying that Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t care about publishers.

The Australian on Monday reported that in a meeting with Australian media executives, Facebook’s Head of News Partnerships Campbell Brown said: “Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t care about publishers but is giving me a lot of leeway and concessions to make these changes”.

Brown reportedly said that publishers who choose not to work with Facebook will wind up in a dying business.

“Facebook said the remarks were inaccurate and taken out of context,” Fortune reported.

The Australian claimed the story was based on information from five people present at the meeting with Brown who requested anonymity.

Earlier in August, Facebook announced to invest an additional $4.5 million towards helping the publishing industry globally.

The social media giant, that reported more than $5 billion in profit in the second quarter this year, said it will give $3.5 million towards “Facebook Membership Accelerator”, a three-month pilot programme designed to help publishers with membership models.

“We are going to continue to coach the group of metro news publishers from the pilot programme through the end of this year, and we will reconvene with them in 2019 to focus on subscriber retention,” Brown said in a blog post.

“Moving forward, we’ll also be exploring ways to support emerging models like membership directly on Facebook,” said Brown. (IANS)

The main benefits of buying Facebook likes

  1. It gets you attention
    Decent numbers of likes creates a buzz and gives you a better chance of appearing in search engine results, and on random people’s pages. Of course you need to have something really good on offer to maintain interest when people take a look at your page, but at least you know your efforts to show off what you have written will be rewarded.
  2. It’s a simple way to build or boost your brand
    This is important because when viewers see a page, especially one related to a business, has a lot of likes it creates an image of credibility and trust. That’s something you need if people are going to buy a product or service from you, or even just to encourage them to like and follow – and perhaps be active on your page at some point. People are also much more likely to share your page or invite friends to like it if they believe it is trustworthy.

    3. You get results fast
    It can be disheartening to devote hours of effort to promoting your Facebook page only to find that likes are added really slowly. There is only so much you can do through your own efforts, so buying likes is a good way to get things moving and reach a big potential genuine pool of Facebook users.

    The main benefits of buying Instagram likes

  3. Greater exposure – fast
    Likes can usually be delivered quickly, in some cases within hours of ordering, which boosts your content immediately as other people are naturally drawn to things others consider likeable.

    2. An affordable way to boost your content
    Good and trustworthy providers of Instagram paid likes offer several different packages, and all are pretty good value, so you don’t need to break your budget.

    3. It’s a safe way to boost your site
    Again, presuming you choose a respected provider, as the likes you get will be decent quality (made by real people with real accounts, not bots.) Check a provider out by looking at things like how long they have been in business, their reputation and reviews across the web.

    4. Buying likes saves you time
    Freeing up a lot of time normally spent promoting your Instagram page can be spent instead on building connections, adding fantastic content and all the other tasks which take time.
