Facebook Feeding Less Traffic to Other Sites

You may recall that Meta is dead set against paying publishers whose links appear on its site.  Coincidentally or not, the traffic from Facebook to such links has fallen by half in the past year, according to data from Echobox.  It seems Meta is showing users more videos instead.  All fine, but Reuters Institute reports that more people get news from social media than news sites and Facebook is still the most common social media news source, although its share is rapidly falling.
