A deal has been struck between the Federal Government and social media giant Facebook.

It comes after a tense stand-off with the company over news content.

The tech giant blocked local media outlets on its platform, in response to new laws forcing it to pay for content.

The company will restore news pages over the coming days, after reaching a compromise with the government.
