Facebook is upset because Australia is about to require sites to pay news publishers for content, so Facebook decided to play hardball and blocked Australian news sites from posting and people from sharing stories from Australian news sources. Google ended up paying. A bunch of non-news pages were accidentally targeted as well.

While this doesn't affect me, other countries want to follow in Australia's footsteps, including Canada. I worry if they do the same thing in the U.S., like sharing news headlines for people's friends to see.
