Facebook Tells Real Story Behind Blocked News Content in Australia – Facebook tells the true story behind blocked news content in Australia

The social media platform Facebook previously announced blocking access to news on its platform for Australian users and publishers. Although Facebook later retracted its decision, it has now told the real story behind what actually happened. The social networking site said that in recent times such claims were being made repeatedly that Facebook steals or does basic journalism for its own benefit, which is utterly wrong.

Solution after discussion
Last week, Facebook announced that it was stopping sharing news during its service in Australia. This is now resolved after discussions with the Australian government – we agree to new deals with publishers and once again the news link – said Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs affairs at Facebook, in a blog post late on Wednesday Looking forward to enabling Australia to share.

Clarification on misunderstanding
It has also been said that Facebook’s view on this issue is merely a fundamental misunderstanding in the relationship between Facebook and news publishers.
Clegg argued, he is the publisher himself, who chooses to share his story on social media or make them available for sharing by others. Because they get value by doing so. This is why buttons are provided on their sites, which encourage readers to share them.

Media Bargaining Code Responds
He said, neither do we demand the content for which we are being asked to pay an exorbitant price. In fact news links are a small part of the experience of users on Facebook. Facebook’s ban was in response to the new Media Bargaining Code. Let me tell you that in Australia, there was a ruckus about preparing the law to force platforms like Google and Facebook to pay for news. However, it is now clear from the recent statement that Facebook has resolved the issue after discussions with Australian authorities and now the social media platform will share news related content in the country.
