Facebook will block Australian users and publishers from sharing news links in response to new bill

Facebook has decided to block both Australian users and media companies from sharing links to news articles and related content on its main social network, following the country’s proposed landmark regulatory measure that would force tech giants to pay Australian news organizations for using their content.

The bill passed the Australian House of Representatives today and is believed to have enough votes to pass the Senate, The New York Times reported.
