More than 200 companies have joined the boycott campaign on Facebook-otgnewsupdate

More than 200 companies around the world have joined the campaign to stop advertising on Facebook for failing to control misinformation and hateful content.

 More than 200 companies and human rights organizations around the world are involved in the 'Stop Hate For Profit' campaign against Facebook for not taking action against racism, violence, lies and hatred.

These companies include Microsoft, Unilever, Honda, Ford, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Starbucks, Chocolate Giant Hershey and others.

Leading German sportswear and apparel companies Adidas and Puma have now joined the campaign, and both companies have decided not to advertise on Facebook and Instagram.

 Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook, has lost more than 7 7 billion (approximately 11 trillion Pakistani rupees) due to the boycott campaign, and the loss will only increase after more companies are announced.

Mark Zuckerberg's fortune plummeted to 82 82.3 billion last week due to a boycott of ads, and now the founder of Facebook is the fourth richest man in the world.

The campaign against the world's largest and most popular social media site began when a black man named George Floyd was killed in police custody in the United States late last month.

 According to human rights groups, the Facebook administration has not taken effective action to remove racist hate content and misinformation from the police online, while Mark Zuckerberg has taken action against controversial posts by US President Trump. He also refused to take it.

Facebook decides to ban hate speech..

On the other hand, after the ban on advertisements, Facebook has decided to ban hateful advertisements.

According to the company, Facebook will ban all ads that pose a threat to a particular race, nationality, caste, gender, sexual orientation or physical safety or health.

The Facebook company has also stated that it will clarify news content published on its platform that is against Facebook's policies.

 The new policy bans advertisements that pose a threat to the health and lives and property of others of a particular race, nationality, religion, caste, sexual orientation, gender, identity and immigrants.
