For the 1st time, FB added a correction notice on a post which officials have considered 'fake news' shared on the platform by an Australian blogger, after pressure put by the Singapore govt. FB corrected blogger Alex Tan's post whose site is banned in Singapore. FB routinely complies with the govt requests to block content that violates local laws. But Singapore's POFMA has been applied 1st time on a social media platform.
