Facebook has reached an agreement with the Australian government and will restore news pages in the country days after restricting them.
The decision follows negotiations between the tech giant and the Australian government, which is set to pass a new media law that will require digital platforms to pay for news.
The law, if passed, will make digital platforms pay local media outlets and publishers to link their content in news feeds or search results.
Under the amendments to the proposed bill, the Australian government will take into account commercial agreements that digital platforms like Google and Facebook have already made with local news media businesses before deciding if the code applies to the tech giants.
Tuesday's amendments are expected to provide "further clarity" to digital platforms and news organizations on how the bargaining code will be implemented, the government said.
