Facebook Launches Bulletin, Its Substack Competitor

J. Clara Chan, reporting for The Hollywood Reporter:

The newsletter platform, which is competing with Substack, launched on Tuesday with a stable of writers that includes Malcolm Gladwell, Tan France, Jessica Yellin, Jane Wells, Erin Andrews and Dorie Greenspan. Bulletin writers will own all their content and email subscriber lists, and Facebook will not be taking a cut from any of their subscription revenue, which are processed via Facebook Pay.

Will Oremus:

One antitrust concept that I’m surprised we don’t hear more about these days with respect to tech giants is “predatory pricing.”
