Facebook announces lifting ban on news

MELBOURNE: The dispute between the Australian government and Facebook over the past few days has finally been resolved. A truce was reached between them. With this, Facebook announced that it was lifting the ban on news from Australian news agencies. It announced that it would soon resume news on its site. It is known that the Australian government has introduced a law requiring news organizations to pay news organizations for sharing news on social media such as Google and Facebook. In protest of the law, Facebook banned users from sharing news on their platform in Australia. There was outrage across the country over the suspension of Facebook news. The Australian government has invited Facebook to negotiate under mandatory conditions. As part of the talks, an agreement was reached between Australian Finance Minister (Treasurer) Josh Friedekberg and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Will Australia, managing director of Facebook Australia, said the agreement also lifted Facebook’s ban on news pages. Facebook said in a statement that it was pleased to have reached an agreement with the Australian government. Australian Prime Minister Morrison has said the company has become friends with him again. Google, meanwhile, seems to have already struck deals with smaller companies in Australia. It has also set up a special section called News Showcase for this. It’s designed to show all the news that news organizations post.
