Facebook Ghosts Australian News Media

Posted on: Fri 19 Feb 2021

As of yesterday, news links have been completely blocked from Facebook.

This has come following extended negotiations around the news media bargaining code which have been debated for months.

Both Google and Facebook have argued and pushed back against this code, but as it looked to become a reality Facebook yesterday announced it would be stripping news links from Australian users.

Associate Professor of Regulation and Governance, from UNSW Rob Nicholls speaks with Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Paul Davies about what this means for Australia and negotiations going forward.
