Facebook blocked all news content in Australia. Google didn't follow suit.

Facebook has blocked Australian users from seeing, sharing, or interacting with news content on its platform. The move is in response to the country’s proposed "news and media bargaining code," which would force Facebook and Google to pay news publishers to display stories in their search results and news feeds. Google, on the other hand, is enticing news publishers onto its Showcase platform with multi-million dollar deals.
