This morning, Australian's are waking up to the news that Facebook has blocked them from accessing news as well as some NFP organisations + emergency service pages. This is in response to proposed laws that would force tech companies to pay for news content and has caused mass confusion and outrage from the media and citizens alike.
From ABC News: "The government said it was continuing to talk with Facebook, and founder Mark Zuckerberg has already spoken to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg this morning.... Facebook has said the proposed laws fundamentally misunderstood the relationship between their platform and publishers who used it to share news content."
What's your thoughts on Facebook banning Australians from accessing news? And in response, have you followed your favourite news sites and/or organisations on other platforms / newsletters etc. this morning?
