The Australian’s Senior Technology Reporter Chris Griffith says while Facebook has reached a compromise with the government, its news ban was a “wakeup call” for businesses which heavily depend on the platform.Mr Griffith said Facebook’s move which extended to deleting posts from a children’s hospital, domestic violence support, health services, Indigenous health support and many businesses brought home to everyone “how dependent they’ve been on Facebook”.“It’s a wakeup call to organisations across the country that they need to think carefully about whether they want to have their Facebook page as their main point of contact with all their supporters or followers,” he told Sky News.“I think it’s a pretty dangerous situation we’ve arrived, whether Facebook’s a good citizen or not, that we have a private organisation actually as the main channel of communication.“I’ve seen the last few days a number of news organizations and others start to say you can contact us on our website … or via our apps.“I think organisations and businesses generally should really promote the other ways of contacting them, so they don’t have their eggs in one basket”
