Sydney: Social networking site Facebook has banned Australian media from sharing news.
According to a foreign news agency, the Australian government has introduced a law under which Facebook will have to pay from the revenue earned by Facebook for sharing news and content on Australian media websites.
Facebook has banned Australian users from sharing any Australian media news or article on its page and wall, while Australian media will not be able to use their Facebook pages. Australia has called Facebook’s move “abusive and abusive”.
Facebook fears that if it recognizes the Australian law, other countries will follow suit.
