Facebook has become for many Publishers - an addiction. Plug into the social network, and you’re hooked. But now Facebook is forcing publishers to go cold-turkey, shutting off the firehose of clicks and likes that has become an audience addiction. So, what happens next? Can Publishers find a new way to connect with digital audiences? Will Mark Zuckerberg’s new search for “Time Well Spent” include any portion of news in the Facebook digital diet? Will pressure to solve the “fake news” problem mean throwing out trusted news sources as well?
