Facebook to reverse ban on Australian news sites.
Facebook is set to reverse its ban on Australian news sites "in the coming days" after reaching an agreement with the federal government.
"We’re pleased that we’ve been able to reach an agreement with the Australian government and appreciate the constructive discussions we’ve had with Treasurer Frydenberg and Minister Fletcher over the past week," Facebook said in a statement.
"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 recognise the value our platform provides to publishers relative to the value we receive from them."
"As a result of these changes, we can now work to further our investment in public interest journalism and restore news on Facebook for Australians in the coming days."
The news comes after Facebook followed through on its threat to ban Australians sharing news on its platform in response to a proposed media bargaining code.
As of Thursday February 18, Australian users and publishers were restricted from viewing or sharing domestic and international news, with overseas users also unable to access Australian news content.
"A terrifying scream." Woman and ex likely killed in suspicious Brisbane fire.
Forensics are underway to confirm whether two bodies discovered after a suspicious unit fire south of Brisbane are a woman and her former partner.
Flames consumed the Browns Plains unit on Monday morning where a 49-year-old woman was trapped inside, with neighbours telling 9News they heard "a lady screaming out for help... it was a terrifying scream."
Police believe the woman's former partner, a 49-year-old man, gained entry to the home just before 4am Monday, with the entire unit gutted by fire.
