Facebook News Ban of Media and Government for Australians

I’ve been covering new media bargaining code in my Monday Social Media News lives, multicast at 10:45am Sydney time on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter/Periscope and LinkedIn Live but today the other shoe dropped. #FacebookNewsBan !!!

In my livestream I cover how Facebook already pays Media, that the mandatory part is paying for people seeing a headline and thumbnail in their newsfeed?!, why Government is banned on Facebook (spoiler alert: they listed their own Pages as news/media?!)? and I try not to rant about how Murdoch’s own investments including in Bing are driving this agenda.

If you walk by, kerching!

You can watch my Social Media News (Australia) live at 10:45am on Monday mornings and my Lecture Series: Social Media live on Thursdays at 1pm (currently on Universities and Colleges) on a social media platform where I’m not media-blocked 😛
