[১] Facebook will lift the ban on Australian news after agreeing to amend the law

Rashidul Islam: [২] As Canberra agrees to amend the law, Australian users will be able to see the news again on its Facebook page. But for this the web platforms have to pay. RT

[৩] Australian Treasurer Josh Friedenberg said Facebook had promised to re-post news of its country on its Facebook page. Facebook has shut down all types of news content in Australia since Thursday morning. As a result, users are not able to read or share any kind of news.

[৪] Facebook is now in commercial negotiations with Australian news media. Facebook is set to re-add news pages after agreeing to a proposed law change to force tech giants to pay for media content promotion.

[৫] Canberra’s conflict with Facebook lasted more than a week after the media code was passed. The online platform decided to warn the Australian government over a proposed law for publishers to charge extra money from Facebook.

[৬] Facebook says Australian news sites already have billions of dollars in free traffic. According to the new media code, they will have to pay some money from now on.
