Australia’s health department has withdrawn its contact with Facebook. The decision has been taken in view of the country’s government’s disputes with the social media giant. In fact, Facebook has blocked new content on its platform in the country. Let us say that Australia has started the Covid-19 vaccination across the country.
It may be noted that Facebook has banned all news websites from posting news to show news in Australia. The weather, state health department, and Western Australian opposition leaders have come under the grip of facebook’s ban. Even Facebook has blocked its page in Australia. Due to this, emergency service is affected in the country.
In this order, Facebook also banned its Australian users from opening the news of any news website in the country and abroad. Facebook has said that it is banning it against the Senate law. The law says that Facebook and Google will talk to news companies to pay the money.
The Australian Meteorological Department’s page has also been blocked by Facebook. Earlier, the Australian government had said that the draft laws would be amended to clarify that Publishers for Google and Facebook news would pay a lump sum amount instead of per click on the news link.
