Following Australia's implementation of the law, the social media company blocked Australian users from sharing or viewing local or international news content on its site. But the decision sparked outrage among Facebook users and politicians, with #DeleteFacebook and #BoycottZuckerberg trending on Twitter last week. The news blackout also meant that 17 million Australian Facebook users were left without crucial information on the coronavirus vaccine as the government prepares to roll out the jab. The news ban also impacted emergency services, television stations, charities, satire sites and music bands. But in a sharp u-turn, the social media platform was then forced to reinstate government pages, along with vital health and weather department services. The Australian government's move to force Facebook to pay for its news content has garnered worldwide attention, with the European Commissioner for digital services drawing up new EU rules for online business.
