This Is How People Are Reacting To Facebook Banning News Across The Entire Country

Facebook pulled the plug.

For some time Facebook has been threatening to pull news from local and international outlets across Australian Facebook pages in response to the government’s plan to force tech platforms to pay news publishers for content. While Google has struck a deal with News Corp, Facebook decided to go ahead with its threat. (Featured image: @davidclode)

These have been some of our favourite responses from Australians…mostly on Twitter.

1. The Weeknd gif that keeps on giving

2. Twitter is capitalising

3.  The world now according to Facebook

4.  Ban everything! (Well, not everything)

5. Wait, who wasn’t affected?

6. What to do, what to do?

7. Is Facebook the villain?

7. Maybe, but they even banned themselves?

8. Some people think Australia is coming out on top

9. Please let this be true

Whatever your thoughts on the debate, one thing is for sure: Australians are funny.
