Fox News: At Least 500 Companies Pull Facebook Ads

‘Facebook is selling you and your data and everything that you’re doing, all the likes, all the pictures that you share’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LARSON: “Pretty damaging, Howie, it’s interesting to note when you’re using Facebook, you’re not the customer, you’re actually the product, Facebook is selling you and your data and everything that you’re doing, all the likes, all the pictures that you share, all the comments that you make, all the posts that you make, all the ads that you click on, all of that data is sold to advertisers so it’s interesting that now it’s the advertisers, all right, hold on a second, we are not going to have advertisements in line with all this other content that is being created by users if people are posting racist or hateful things, we don’t want that to show up next to an ad for one of our products. YouTube had the same problem back in 2017, I think a lot of people have since forgotten about, where advertisers were saying, hold on a second, you can’t have these conspiracy theory, these crazy hateful videos up and then have our ad be the prerole for it so you need to put restrictions in place so it’s good that the advertisers are stepping forward and saying enough is enough.”
