Facebook Flexes its Political Prowess

In a world where “world leader” means “billionaire”, Facebook just showed Australia its place in the power hierarchy – down under. The counter-clockwise-flushing commonwealth feigned an attack by threatening to make Facebook pay Aussie news publishers for content. Facebook quickly countered (they just don’t have that kind of money) by cancelling ALL news on Australia’s Facebook network. The good news? Big Brother and Little Brother, whichever is which, have since made up and are on liking terms after a 5 day blackout, though in response to Facebook’s latest post on the ordeal, Australia left no comment.
