Australian Competition & Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims says Facebook and Google are "clear competitors" to traditional media companies with regard to advertising revenue. He has told a conference in Sydney that the ACCC’s investigation into digital platforms will examine whether their growing share of ad revenue is having an impact on quality journalism in the publishing and broadcasting sector. Digital companies’ collection and use of consumer data will also be scrutinised by the inquiry.
