Australia Is in Talks With Zuckerberg Over Facebook News Ban

Australian officials are reportedly in talks with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after the social media platform made the decision to ban all news content in Australia in response to new legislation that would force tech giants to pay news publishers.

Forbes reports that Australian Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has revealed that the country is in talks with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after Facebook chose to ban all news content in Australia in response to new legislation that would force the firm to pay news publishers.

Breitbart News recently reported that the Facebook pages of several Australian agencies like the Bureau of Meteorology, Department of Fire and Emergency Services Western Australia, and the health department pages of multiple Australian states including South Australia, NSW, and Queensland have been taken down by Facebook.

Zuckerberg’s business model is ‘stuffed’ after Australian news ban

Social commentator Prue MacSween says Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg “thinks he’s invincible”, but the ban on Australian news will leave his business model “stuffed”. It comes after Facebook implemented a ban on Australian news amid growing hostilities over the federal government’s media bargaining code. Ms MacSween told Sky News host Peta Credlin she believes Mr Zuckerberg is the kind of guy who “thinks he knows it all”.

“He’s had incredible power, he’s got incredible power through money and through manipulation, I just think he believes he’s invincible,” she said.
