Recently, Facebook had banned news channels, news agency and news page in Australia. At the same time, after the government’s warning, the company has decided to remove this ban.
After the media law in Australia, the dispute between the government and Facebook is now resolved. The government asked Facebook to remove the ban on news channels, news agency and news page, after which Facebook agreed to lift the ban. The company says that the ban on Australia’s news page will be removed in the coming few days. The news agency AFP has informed about this on behalf of the government.
Government requested to remove the ban
On the other hand, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday requested Facebook to lift the ban on users of Australia and talk to businesses that publish news. At the same time, Morrison also gave warning that other countries can also follow their government’s steps to collect fees from digital companies in exchange for sharing news.
Prime Minister Morrison spoke to PM Modi
Australian Prime Minister Morrison said that he spoke to Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Thursday about the Facebook controversy. He is also in talks with leaders of Britain, Canada and France about this proposed legislation of Australia.
Morrison said that many countries want to do what Australia is doing, so I invite Facebook to talk creatively, just like Google, because they know that what Australia is going to do here is to follow many Western countries can. Morrison termed the move by Facebook to prevent people from Australia from accessing the news and sharing it as a threat.
This was the case
Let us know that Facebook had banned the viewing and sharing of news in Australia. Facebook also blocked its own page in Australia. Facebook said that it had taken this step in protest against the media law.
