18 February 2021, Facebook announced that Australians would no longer be allowed to use the software to share news links.

An Australian minister called the fight an “attack on sovereign states” and abuse of power.

The decision also blocked some communication activities related to the Australian government, including information about emergency services, as well as some commercial websites, according to the report.

Australian Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg said that Facebook took this extreme action because Australia asked Facebook and Google to pay the Australian news media.
