Re: Screw Australia's clumsy attempt....
But some content is needed to make the link meaningful. But how much?
None at all and just show the raw URLs to the users.
Just the TITLE tag. Maybe scrape the headline from the article. That will just encourage more clickbait from the news sites.
First paragraph. Is that all people need to know about the article so no clicks (as was the previous situation), encouraging news sites just hide all the details until the second paragraph?
I can't stand Facebook, but they have been told that if they do X they need to pay. So they decided not to do X, and a lot of unexpected things have been caught in that due to the poor definition in the law. I expect attempts will be made to force them to carry certain "news" AND pay for it.
If any country wants to declare Facebook an essential service (and I really hope not), that country should pay for it.
