According to Australian SBS TV just news, Facebook CEO Zuckerberg and Australian Treasury Secretary Josh Frydenberg reached an agreement on the 23rd local time.
According to Australian media previously, Facebook began to prohibit Australian users from sharing and browsing news on its platform on the 18th.
As a result, Australian users were once unable to browse the Facebook account content of local weather, firefighting, health and other public services.
After Facebook “blacked” Australia, the country’s Prime Minister Morrison spoke for two consecutive days.
According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on the 19th, Morrison urged Facebook to stop restrictions on sharing and accessing news among Australian users and “return to the negotiating table” with news publishers.
Morrison also said he would not pay attention to Facebook’s threats, saying that it was “not a good way to deal with the government”.
The day before, Morrison pointed out that Facebook’s move amounted to “bullying”.
According to ABC, Australian Treasury Secretary Josh Frydenberg said on the 19th that he had held two talks with Mark Zuckerberg after Facebook blocked Australian media content.
