Facebook Restrictions - What this means

18 February 2021

You may have seen that Facebook has banned Australian users from accessing news in their feeds.

As part of this, Facebook has locked down a number of Facebook pages across Australia, including a range of Deaf services, disability service organisations, education and health providers and not-for-profit organisations.

Our Expression Australia Facebook page has been locked. This means that you won’t be able to access our Facebook page at all.

We know that many of our clients and community come to our Facebook page for news and updates in Auslan. To ensure that you still get information in Auslan:

For Auslan updates (Mon/Wed/Fri), please go to the Auslan Updates page on our website in the News and Events section.

To access Auslan interpreted press conferences – please follow the ABC NEWS YouTube channel.

We are working with other Deaf Societies and Deaf Victoria to raise our concerns about how this impacts our clients and community’s ability to access vital information in Auslan.
