A Facebook boycott campaign has recently begun in the United States to pressure the company – which also owns Instagram – to take tougher action against posts containing hate speech.

  • Why giants suspended advertising on social media

Giants like Unilever and Verizon announced a temporary pause in paid ads – the main source of revenue – on the social network last Friday (26). They have been followed by other companies and some have also extended the measure to Twitter and YouTube.

Not all of them claim to be joining the “Stop hate for profit” campaign, which posted on its website a list of almost 100 companies that, according to the organizers, endorsed the movement that calls for a boycott of Facebook ads in July. They intend to win global support.

The list does not include the Starbucks chain of coffee shops, which last Sunday also announced it will stop buying ads on social networks, but, according to a CNBC report, would not officially join the campaign.

On Friday (26), Facebook announced that it would start labeling publications with the potential to cause harm or misinformation.

The company’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg, also said he would ban ads that say “people of specific races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, castes, sexual orientations, sexual identities or immigration status” are a threat to others.
