In Australia, Facebook has suddenly banned many of its pages, affecting many emergency services. Facebook has banned many pages from posting anything that used to warn people about the corona virus, fire and cyclone. Facebook has banned many government pages and websites along with the common news website.
Facebook decided against the new law
In fact, angry with the law of giving money to show news in Australia, Facebook has banned all news pages there to post their news. Facebook’s ban included news websites as well as some government departments and government sites. The Facebook page of the Western Australia Fire Department was also blocked from posting anything.
In law, Facebook will have to pay money to news companies to share news
Google and Facebook news in Australia requires publishers to pay to print news. The government is going to make a law about it. On Tuesday itself, it was said that publishers would have to pay the amount instead of every click on the news link.
Facebook banned all websites showing news
At the same time, Google and Facebook have expressed their displeasure over this and threatened that if this law is passed, then Google will stop its services in the country. At the same time, Facebook had said that if it was forced to pay, Australian publishers would be barred from sharing the news and now Facebook has done so.
