Facebook has secured a content deal with online news website Guardian Australia under the federal government’s news media bargaining code. Guardian Australia content will be featured on the Facebook News platform, which has yet to be launched. Country Press Australia has also secured a content deal with the social media giant. Australian Competition & Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims says the majority of local media companies have now secured such deals, adding that they would not have been achieved without the media bargaining code.
