Facebook and Apple had disputes about the Facebook subscription tool for iOS devices. After a long run, both resolved in the dispute. Apple prevent the social network giant for its subscription tools for iOS devices.
All the issues are now solved. In an interview at Code Media in Huntington Beach, Calif Facebook executive Campbell Brown said:
“It’s resolved,” Now Facebook says it will roll out a version of the tool, which has already been available on Android phones, on Apple phones in March.
However, the other fellow executive Adam Mosseri didn’t give any further details about the dispute settlement. In answering a question Brown said:
All publishers were asking for the paywall’s so-called meter — or the number of free articles that can be viewed before being sent to the actual publisher — to be lowered to five. The change will roll out March 1.
Apple was asking for a fee that was about 30 percent of revenue of Facebook per month. Facebook was disagreed to pay a huge amount of the fee to the Apple developers over the iOS devices for proving a subscription tools. As the report stated:
Facebook currently doesn’t take any of the money from subscriptions publishers sell using its tool, which puts up a paywall when readers try to reach certain stories. When readers hit the wall, they’re sent to the publisher’s website, where they can sign up for a subscription.
Facebook is planning for launching further features for iOS and Android users. The social networking giant is asking for news highlights service. What are your thoughts about the Facebook and Apple dispute? Share your comments in the comments section given below!
