Facebook & Privacy ConcernsOctober 28, 2019
Putting marketers like me—and agencies like mine—to the side, has Facebook significantly addressed privacy concerns and real vs. fake news? I discussed this with the host of Indus Special, in the continuation of our recent conversation.
While on one hand Facebook has made some effort to curb fake news (when the messaging is coming directly from a political campaign); on the other hand, these restrictions do NOT apply to Political Action Committees or advocacy groups.
The big takeaway: There have been some efforts to minimize or restrict the dissemination of content and false information; HOWEVER, the restrictions do not apply to individual accounts and paid ads, which can still spread disinformation.
