Facebook wants to reform its advertising system to better protect users against defamation, fraud and spam. That announced today

Facebook wants to reform its advertising system to better protect users against defamation, fraud and spam. That announced today
Facebook manager Rob Goldman. Hate speech, insults, intimidation and other harmful behavior are already banned in Community
standards.

Facebook will proactively review many “ads with automated and manual tools”. In addition, Facebook will be active “if users
hide, block or mark ads as offensive or offensive”. The goal is “to remove any content that violates our policies – without
censoring the public debate.”

The world’s largest social network is responding with the tightening of advertising policies to sharp public criticism. On the
one hand, Facebook is under attack because Russian propaganda organizations have been able to interfere with advertisements in
the 2016 US presidential campaign.

In addition, Facebook is accused of repeatedly accepting discriminatory ads. Most recently, ProPublica found that ads that
exclude certain populations can be served on the platform. The organization has commissioned dozens of US housing ads on
Facebook that should not be shown to specific users – such as African Americans, Jews or people interested in wheelchair ramps.
In the US, discriminatory advertising in the areas of credit, housing and employment is illegal.

Facebook admitted that they had violated their own policies by accepting the ads. “It was a mistake in the implementation and
we are disappointed that we could not reach our targets.”
