  3. Facebook is blocking content from many Australian retro gaming pages

Both Facebook and Google have been threatening the Australian Government to take drastic measures to it's proposed law that would require social media giants to pay for links to news content. Overnight, Facebook took a drastic step to pre-emptively start blocking all news content on its platform. This wasn't limited to just news and media company pages, it affected emergency services, Government information pages and yes... RETRO GAME PAGES!

Atari Gamer's, page was caught up in this too (yes we are from Australia if you didn't know!). If you are from Australia, none of the page content is appearing any longer. Apparently international visitors still have access to posts though...

This is what we have to say to Facebook in response...

In addition, we went ahead and created a Discord server, which we will start using more and more to share content and keep in touch with all of you. Please join us at this URL:
