Facebook Changes for Australians
Hello members, friends, and Family of Wealthy Affiliate!
just a quick post to inform you what is happening here in Australia, regarding reading and sharing news for Australians on Facebook:
A: In response to Australia's proposed new Media Bargaining law in Australia, Facebook will restrict publishers and people in Australia from sharing or viewing Australian and international news content on Facebook.
What will users see when they try to post or share news content?
For our Australian community, this means they cannot view or share Australian or international news content on Facebook or content from Australian and international news Pages.
For our international community, this means they cannot view or share Australian news content on Facebook or content from Australian news Pages.
What will happen when users try to share news content? How are you going to monitor this?
Australian users are restricted from being able to post links to news domains. Global users will be restricted from being able to post links to Australian news domains.
Will it be all news content or just content from Australian news organizations?
Australian users are restricted from being able to post, share or see any news content - either from Australian or global news organizations or entities. Users outside of Australia cannot post, share or see any news content from Australian news organizations or entities.
Why is Facebook making this decision?
A: The proposed law fundamentally misunderstands the relationship between our platform and publishers who use it to share news content. It has left us facing a stark choice: attempt to comply with a law, that ignores the realities of this relationship or stops allowing news content on our services in Australia. With a heavy heart, we are choosing the latter.
