Facebook has made it official: news can no longer be shared among Australian users of the platform, as they have done Frontal opposition to the new law that would make electronic companies have to pay for the news they show.
“The proposed law fundamentally breaks the relationship between our platform and the news distributors who use it to share content,” said William Easton, Head of Facebook Australia and New Zealand.
“Google Search includes news and distributors do not provide their content. But they can choose to appear on Facebook, leading to more subscriptions, increasing audiences and even having more presence.
Unfortunately, eliminating the news means that other non-current services are affected as well, see emergency services, the government health department, NGOs, comic websites, video game topics and even some sports publications at the level. international.
Some of these sources have been restored by Facebook but they are still inaccessible. We talk about atrocities, such as the Bowel Cancer Australia organization to EA, passing through the Denver Broncos.
