Facebook Inc. will restore links to news articles in Australia, five days after blocking news from its platform in response to a proposed law requiring tech giants to pay publishers for their content.
“We’re restoring news on Facebook in Australia in the coming days,” Campbell Brown, Facebook’s vice president of global news partnerships, said in a statement late Monday night.
“After further discussions, we are satisfied that the Australian government has agreed to a number of changes and guarantees that address our core concerns about allowing commercial deals that recognize the value our platform provides to publishers relative to the value we receive from them,” Facebook
said in a separate statement.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
