Our Statement in Response to Facebook's Ban on Australian media
For almost six years and 62 issues, intouch Magazine has been the leading source of high-quality, glossy and engaging local content for the people of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and the Hunter Valley.
And yes - it is - and will continue to remain FREE!
We’re incredibly disappointed by the decision made by Facebook today to prohibit publishers and people in Australia from sharing or viewing not just our content, but a whole raft of other valuable local content.
We’re grateful to our 24,000 Facebook followers and genuinely appreciate the support you have given us today by visiting our website and subscribing. You have every right to feel cheated over what can only be described as an irresponsible action by Facebook, and we implore the Federal Government to take swift action in response.
We hope this is only temporary, but in the meantime, we urge each and every one of our followers to stay up to date with local events and support local business by subscribing (right here on this website!) or following us on Instagram @intouchMagazines.
And of course, our website is jam-packed full of information about upcoming events, local identities, new businesses and information about our local charities and community. We're here for one reason - to support our local community.
We wish all independent publishers the very best in these bizarre times and thank you for your ongoing support.
The intouch Team xx
