Facebook ‘news’ tab ends for U.S., Australian users



The Facebook news tab on the main homepage is now directing users to an information site, informing them that Facebook news is no longer available.

Users clicking the Facebook News tab are now redirected to this info page.

In a significant shift, Facebook has announced that its Facebook News feature, which was located in the News tab, will no longer be available in the United States and Australia starting in early April.

Users reported Tuesday morning in Australia that the news tab was no longer pointing to a news aggregation site, but rather to an infomation page about the decision to end news on the platform.

This decision follows a similar move made earlier in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, where the Facebook News feature was also discontinued.

Facebook News was introduced as a dedicated section within the Facebook app, providing users with curated news articles from various publishers.

It aimed to offer users a convenient way to stay informed about current events and trending topics directly within the Facebook platform.

Big change

However, Facebook’s decision to discontinue the Facebook News feature in the United States and Australia marks a notable change in its approach to news distribution.

While the company has not provided detailed reasons for this decision, it comes amidst increasing scrutiny over Facebook’s role in disseminating news and its impact on the media landscape.

The move also comes at a time when Facebook is facing regulatory challenges and controversies related to its handling of news content. Critics have raised concerns about the spread of misinformation and the influence of social media platforms on public discourse.

With the discontinuation of Facebook News, users in the United States and Australia will no longer have access to the curated news articles previously available in the News tab.

However, Facebook has stated that it remains committed to supporting journalism and news publishers through other initiatives.

Latest Sydney church horror: Stabbing rocks Wakeley community



A man has been arrested after a bishop was stabbed at Christ the Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley.

Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was preaching at Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley in Sydney’s west on Monday just after 7pm when a man dressed in black walked up to the altar and allegedly stabbed him multiple times.

Eyewitnesses described scenes of chaos and terror as an assailant approached the altar where Bishop Emmanuel was delivering a sermon.

Chstbrl Saliba, the Deputy Mayor of Fairfield, told Sky News that after the attack, the Bishop got to his feet, and placed his hand on the head of the assailant and began praying for him.

NSW Police said in a statement:

“A police operation is underway in Wakeley, following reports of a stabbing. Officers attached to Fairfield City Police Area Command attended a location on Welcome Street, Wakeley following reports a number of people were stabbed. Officers arrested a male and he is assisting police with inquiries.”

2GB Radio host Ben Fordham says the situation is so chaotic outside the church that police have had to use capsicum spray outside of the church. One woman has been treated.


Fordham says police are concerned about the volatile situation outside the church.

Without warning, the attacker unleashed a flurry of stabs, targeting the bishop and several worshippers in a frenzied assault.

Horrifying footage captured the moment of the attack, as the live broadcast on the church’s social media pages captured the unfolding tragedy.

Bishop Emmanuel’s expression of astonishment turned to one of sheer horror as he became the primary target of the assailant’s vicious blows.

NSW ambulance has confirmed at least one person has been taken to hospital.

The assault at Christ the Good Shepherd Church echoes previous instances of mass violence that have rocked Sydney in recent years, after six people were killed by a man at Bondi.
