SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — More than a dozen advertisers were pulling out of Facebook following a campaign that criticized the social media site of allowing pages that promote violence against women.
Women, Action, and the Media launched the campaign last week saying the content included graphic images of abuse and mottos that encouraged rape.
Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg addressed the issue at the All Things D (D-11) conference in Southern California.
On Tuesday, Facebook VP of Global Public Policy Marnie Levine put out a blog post responding to these protests and had come to an agreement with the protesters. She basically came to an agreement with the protesters.
Levine said Facebook is going to do things differently and that they had already taken down the images that had been reported to the, but that they are going to review their guidelines and be stricter about the types of things that they allow.
