  • Meta will remove Facebook’s dedicated news tab in the UK, France, and Germany starting December, citing low user engagement.
  • Despite removal of the news tab, news outlets can still post articles, but Meta’s recent actions suggested reduced referral traffic to media.
  • Amid these changes, Meta won’t be offering new commercial deals or product innovations for local news publishers.
