Nowadays, more and more news readers tend to read news online where they have access to millions of news articles from multiple sources. In order to help users to find the right and relevant content, news recommender systems (NRS) are developed to relieve the information overload problem and suggest news items that users might be interested in. In this paper, we highlight the major challenges faced by the news recommendation domain and identify the possible solutions from the state-of-the-art.

In the first part, we present an overview of the conventional recommendation solutions, datasets, evaluation criteria beyond accuracy and recommendation platforms being used in NRS. In the second part, we explain the deep learning-based recommendation solutions applied in NRS. Different from previous surveys, we also study the effects of news recommendations on user behavior and try to suggest the possible remedies to mitigate these effects. By providing the state-of-the-art knowledge, this survey can help researchers and practical professionals in their understanding of developments in news recommendation algorithms. It also sheds light on potential new directions
