Facebook Should Not Decide What Is True or False, Says Facebook Policy Exec
Jordana Cutler, head of policy at Facebook Israel, said that political ads bring very little revenue to the company. Cutler spoke at a conference on national security and communication held in Tel Aviv
From a business perspective, political ads bring very little revenue to the company, Cutler said. Facebook continues to allow political ads on its platforms because ads can help educate and empower users, and that is an important mission for Facebook, she said. Instead of banning political ads, the company implemented certain policies ahead of the recent election in Israel. One such policy was disclosing who sponsored each political ad published on the platform.
