said it struck a deal with a group of French publishers to pay them for links to their news stories that people share on the social network.

The company says it has signed a licensing agreement with the Alliance de la Presse d’Information Generale, which represents 300 French publishers, to “improve the quality of online information for Internet users and publishers on Facebook”.

But financial terms were not disclosed, and Facebook also said that in January it would launch a French version of its news product on Facebook, where the group’s publishers can allow their stories to appear.

The licensing deal is the result of a broader push by authorities in Europe and elsewhere to force Facebook and other social media companies to compensate publishers for content, and governments have been responding to news outlets’ complaints that internet companies are getting rich at their expense, selling ads linked to their reports without sharing revenue.

France was the first of 27 EU countries to adopt the 2019 Copyright Directive, which sets out a way for publishers and news companies to conclude licensing deals with online platforms.

Google signed a similar framework agreement with the alliance this year, but talks about granting licenses have stalled, prompting French regulators to impose a heavy fine on Google for not negotiating in good faith with publishers.
