Facebook has banned news in Australia

Facebook has announced that it will, from today, “restrict publishers and people in Australia from sharing or viewing Australian and international news content” as a result of the Australian Government’s Media Bargaining Code.

Although the Code is still due to be voted on in parliament, the news ban in the country is already under effect, with Australians waking up today to messages from the social media giant explaining the changes.
