blankFacebook hasn’t completely unfriended Australia. According to Reuters, the social network is currently in negotiations with Australian authorities, a few days after it blocked users in the country from sharing news links. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced in a news conference that the company has ”tentatively friended [the country] again” and that it’s ”back at the table…” They’re expected to hold further talks over the weekend, according to Australian Treasurer Josh Frydenberg who said he talked to company chief Mark Zuckerberg

The social network prevented Australian publishers and residents from posting or sharing news content a few days ago in response to a proposed law in the country that would require it to pay media outlets for their content. In doing so, however, it also accidentally blocked the Pages of various government agencies and non-profit organizations from posting.
