Facebook greed

In Australia it has been proposed that companies like Google and Facebook that re-use and share news media content should pay for that. There has been some push back, though earlier this week Google announced a deal in which it would pay for content produced by the 7News group of companies. It was good to see such a deal as it indicated they valued the efforts of those producing the content.

But then there is Facebook, everyone’s love/hate relationship service provider. It has vehemently refused to step up to the plate and do the same, and has today put in-place measures to prevent Australians from being able to share news content on its service. I quite like that this article reminds readers of Facebook’s issue of fake news on its platform. That they are unwilling to pay for news content given how much money they make, and so little taxes they pay, smacks of greed.

I only wish another service might come along to replace Facebook, I only keep them as I have no alternative with which to communicate / keep in contact with extended family. Today’s greed makes me like them even less.
