Social Networking giant Facebook wants to start hosting content from news organizations.

News sources reveal that Zuckerberg has been in talks with at least six media companies about publishing their content directly on the site with no link-clicking required.

According to the sources, the initial round of publications apparently includes The New York Times, Buzzfeed, National Geographic and The Huffington Post.

Facebook wants to do this because websites take too long to load, and Facebook says that on mobile, the average eight-second page-load takes too long.

Facebook hasn’t exactly established much of a revenue (or traffic-data) sharing precedent.

The whole deal looks very one-sided since users stay on Facebook longer while news organizations sacrifice audience info and advertising income in exchange for eyeballs on its content.
