Facebook to restore Australia news pages soon after striking deal

Australia’s treasurer said Facebook will restore news pages on the platform in the country after striking a deal for amendments to a proposed law that would force the tech giant to pay for media content. Canberra will offer four changes, including a change to the mechanism for final offer arbitration. Last week, Facebook had blocked all news content and several Australian government accounts.

If ya'll read the article you will see that Australia didn't cave at all. They just amended some details. At the end of the day Aus won because FB is going to be paying out more. If FB had won this battle there would be no chamges.

How abou that; FB realised Aussies would give them the finger and the rest of the world would follow - to legislate against them. Democracy and Governments run a country, not big tech. Besides; who in their right mind would use FB as a news source when it’s driven by algorithms and then they decide what we see.
