As you may of seen yesterday, Facebook have blocked “news sites” as part of their response to the Federal Australian Government’s move to enforce Facebook to pay for news content via a new Media Bargaining Code.
As a result of this ban, many major news sources have been blocked, including ABC News, The Sydney Morning Herald, Sky News and more.
However a number of additional sites have also been hit such as charity websites, weather reporting sites and various small businesses.
Unfortunately, and despite efforts to reverse the ban, several major promotions have seen their Facebook pages block in Australia, including Melbourne City Wrestling, Professional Championship Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Australia.
Snap Mayors Media’s own Facebook presence has also been blocked within Australia.
Thankfully top Melbourne promotion Deathmatch Downunder has remained unscathed as their Facebook page has survived.
Remember however there are ways you can follow US and your favorite Aussie promotions on their other social media channels such as Twitter and Instagram.
