Australians all over the country are waking up to find their favourite Facebook pages have been blocked. Aussies are no longer able to share any local or international news. So all publishers, like 9 News Perth, the ABC etc and even people and pages that share that news (like 98five) have had their pages blocked.
It’s Facebook’s response to the Australian Government’s Media Bargaining Code. Basically our government was attempting to force internet giants (like Facebook and Google) to pay local publishers. Instead, Facebook packed up their toys and left the playground.
Even though Facebook is one of our biggest platforms, this doesn’t mean we can’t connect with you, The Family, anymore. So here are a few ways you can stay connected to 98five content – because we never want to stop having a conversation with you!
Even though Instagram is owned by Facebook, it seems like the bans will not transfer over to Instagram. Follow us and you’ll get to see lots of behind-the-scenes and different content that what was on our Facebook page!

Given Facebook is no longer the place for news, if you’re not already on Twitter, now might be a good time to make the move. We’ll use our Twitter feed similarly to our Facebook feed.
