If you’re across the ditch, you can no longer access our content via Facebook. Here’s how to ensure you don’t miss anything.

In light of the news that Facebook has blocked news content for its users in Australia, here’s a reminder to our readers there – in fact anyone with an interest in news from Aotearoa – about how to make the most of The Spinoff. If you know someone in Australia who fits that bill, we’d love for you to share this post with them.

The best way to stay in touch with what we do is by downloading our free app (for iPhone or Android) and by subscribing to The Bulletin and our other newsletters.

The Bulletin is a cult favourite, with Alex Braae distilling the day’s key New Zealand news stories into a smart, readable email. What sets it apart from others is that it covers all the New Zealand media, not just The Spinoff, and is delivered with flashes of analysis to help make sense of it all. If you just want what we create, we have a daily and a weekly digest – subscribe here.

While you’re at it, why not sign up to The Spinoff Members, which lets our audience contribute to our work and play a role in directing new areas of coverage. As a member you’ll also get exclusive email content, and there’s sweet merch to be had too.

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram (which remains unblocked by its Facebook overlords – for now).

Stories like these are powered by the generous support of our members. If you value what we do and believe in the importance of independent and freely accessible journalism – tautoko mai, donate today.
