Brands Assert There Is Only One Position On Hate

As reported in Reuters, organizers of , which has drawn support from a growing list of major brands, are now preparing to go global to increase pressure on the social media giant to remove hate speech.

Even Facebook’s own definition is highly subjective and full of contradictions. Here’s an example: “Sometimes people share cont...

Facebook and advertisers are locked in an image war, and advertisers are winning

Major advertisers like Unilever, Verizon, and Honda said they would halt ads on Facebook after civil rights groups called on the social platform to better police hate speech and misinformation. The moves by big brands is unlikely to make a big dent in Facebook's $70 billion advertising business since most of its advertisers are small to midsize marketers. Meanwhile, these boycott statements are temporary and vaguely written, which could make it easier for brands to resume spending after July w...
