Facebook blocks Australian users from viewing or sharing news

Sharing is Caring!

Facebook has blocked Australian users from sharing or viewing news content on the platform, causing much alarm over public access to key information.

Australians on Thursday woke up to find that Facebook pages of all local and global news sites were unavailable.

Several government health and emergency pages were also blocked – something Facebook later asserted was a mistake.

The Australian government has strongly criticised the move, saying it demonstrated the “immense market power of these digital social giants”.
