SYDNEY, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Changes to media rules proposedby Australia will allow Facebook Inc to choose if newsremains on the platform and support the publishers it chooses,Campbell Brown, the firm's vice-president of global newspartnerships said on Tuesday.

In a blog posting, Brown said after discussions with theAustralian government, the social media giant would be restoringAustralian news on Facebook in the coming days.

"The government has clarified we will retain the ability todecide if news appears on Facebook so that we won'tautomatically be subject to a forced negotiation," Brown added.(Reporting by Wayne Cole; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
