According to the information provided in the reports, the new media code would not be applicable on Facebook.
If the company can show that it has made enough deals with the news publishers to support the newsrooms, it has a condition.

What has Facebook announced?
Facebook said that they had hit a deal with the Australian government. Their deal will again restore the news articles sharing and posting for users and publishers in Australia.
Actually, Facebook banned this feature of their platform for all users and news publishers last week in Australia. Even that ban remarks its presence in pages of Australia.
Those pages are of Australian government organizations, hospitals, NGOs, charities too. While they find it completely clean.
Campbell Brown, the VP of Global News Partnerships, has made a new post. “He wrote there that we have reached towards an agreement.
According to that agreement Facebook will allow to support chosen publishers that include local and small publishers. In the upcoming time, we would again start news option in Australian Facebook.”
Facebook has updated a blog post. They wrote there that we are agreed with the Australian government’s acceptance of the changes.
Even we guarantee that address about allowing commercial deals which provide our platform the value to publishers relative to the value they receive.
According to such changes, we can further make investments in public interest journalism. And in the upcoming days, we again started the news feature on Facebook for Australians.
The News deal is all about:
Moreover, as per Campbell’s words: Facebook would continue to have the responsibility to provide news facility appears or not on the platform. Thus, it ensures that there would be no chance of automatically subjected to forcible negotiation.
Then, further, she said Facebook is the one who always supports journalism in the world and Australia too. Even the company will “oppose efforts by media regulators to pursue regulatory frameworks.
That don’t account for true value exchanges between publishers and platforms such as Facebook.”
As per Reuters, the Australian government has decided to add four amendments to the proposed media code.
Those four amendments include a Two-month mediation period. That mediation period before going into arbitration would provide two sides more time to negotiate commercial deals.
Firstly that code would be called for mandatory arbitration with the government-appointed arbitrator.
It happens only when news publishers and technology could not do an impartial deal of showing news content. Even Facebook and Google both don’t like this forced clause.
That amendment also has a rule about an Internet company’s contribution. It’s about the durability of the Australian news industry along with the existing deals.
It must be into the narrative just before the code’s implementation, and it comes into force just before one month it’s applied.
In fact, Reuters reported, and Josh Frydenberg, the treasury secretary, said in a statement that further, these amendments would provide clearness to digital platforms and news media business.
The code is studied to work and power the news media business’s framework are salaried.
