Facebook bans Russian state media from putting ads on platform

MOSCOW/WASHINGTON, Feb 28 (PRIME) -- Facebook has forbidden Russian state media from placing advertisements or monetizing on its platform amid the situation in Ukraine, Nathaniel Gleicher, head of security policy at Facebook, said on Twitter on February 26.

УWe are now prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetizing on our platform anywhere in the world. We also continue to apply labels to additional Russian state media. These changes have already begun rolling out and will continue into the weekend,Ф Gleicher said.

УWe are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and will keep sharing steps weТre taking to protect people on our platform,Ф he added.

Reuters also reported on February 26 that AlphabetТs Google barred RussiaТs state-owned media outlet RT and other channels from receiving money for advertisements on their websites, applications, and YouTube videos, similar to a move by Facebook.

Twitter also said the social network has taken some measures, including the suspension of advertisements for Russians and Ukrainians and of recommendations to avoid distribution of abusive content.

УOur top priority is keeping people on Twitter safe. WeТre actively monitoring for risks associated with the conflict in Ukraine, including identifying and disrupting attempts to amplify false and misleading information,Ф the company said.

УWeТre proactively reviewing Tweets to detect platform manipulation (or other inauthentic behavior) and taking enforcement action against synthetic and manipulated media that presents a false or misleading depiction of whatТs happening,Ф Twitter added.
