Facebook has confirmed that Australian users will be able to post news on their Facebook walls again despite the fact that they had been disabled by the measures introduced by the country’s government.
It became complex, because eliminating the news means that other services not related to current affairs as such are also affected, see emergency services, the government health department, NGOs, comic websites, video game topics and even some publications sports internationally.
“After several discussions with the Australian government, we have reached an agreement that will allow us to support the distributors of our choice, including small local ones.“They have said in a release. “We will restore the news on Facebook in Australia in the next few days“.
“To be exact, the government has clarified that they reserve the option of whether or not we accept that a story appears on Facebook, so there will be no negotiation. Our intention has always been to support journalism in Australia and around the world, and we will continue to invest in news globally and fight back against attempts by conglomerates to regulate what appears on social media..”
