Instead of taking Al’s alternative Universe on it, let’s see what the real world has to say…
“Facebook has blocked Australian users from sharing or viewing news content on the platform, causing much alarm over public access to key information.
It comes in response to a proposed law which would make tech giants pay for news content on their platforms.
Australians on Thursday woke up to find that Facebook pages of all local and global news sites were unavailable."
Aha, so Australia was trying to make Facebook PAY for the news that their subscribers post on Facebook. Well, that puts things in a different light, eh? Admittedly, they screwed up when they blocked non-profit, government, and health information, but really, would you like someone to bill you for something other people posted using your property? How would you handle that?
But in Al’s Universe, uninformed knee-jerk reactions are the norm. Goodwyn’s Law™. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8qcccZy03s
