LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BIGtoken® Inc., the first privacy focused, opt-in data marketplace where people own and monetize their data, will host a webinar on March 2, 2021 to discuss Facebook’s recent ban on news in Australia.
Last week, Facebook shut down Australian news and essential service pages in answer to Australia's "News Media and Digital Platforms" Parliamentary Bill. The Australian Bill provides a framework that forces social network platforms, such as Facebook, to pay news providers.
Join host, and BIGtoken CEO, Lou Kerner and experts Jodee Rich and Brittany Kaiser in a discussion about data control, and what this action means for the power struggle between content owners and the dominant global platforms that profit from that content.
What: Facebook v. Australia: Who Controls Who?
- Why is the Australian government protecting news organizations?
- What does this fight mean for "data privacy" and the future moves of global regulators?
- What does it mean when a Silicon Valley platform has become an essential service provider to a sovereign state?
- Who owns my news feed and the algorithms that control it?
