FACEBOOK will lift its ban on news in Australia, days after it forced users to pay for content on the site.

Facebook's Oversight Board Has Received Appeal From 'User' in Trump Ban Case

(Reuters) - Facebook Inc's oversight board has received a "user statement" for the case it is deciding about whether the social media company was right to indefinitely suspend former President Donald Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts, a board spokeswoman confirmed on Tuesday.

Facebook handed the case to its independent board in January. The board's process gave administrators of Trump's Facebook page the option to submit a statement challenging Facebook's decision.

The spokeswoman said the board would have no further comment until it had issued a decision.

The news was first reported by the UK's Channel 4 News.
