Facebook to crack down on hate speech
May 29, 2013 | By Jessica Guynn, Los Angeles Times
SAN FRANCISCO - Activists say an online campaign to curb
misogynist content on Facebook could be a watershed moment for a
growing movement to remove posts and images that promote violence
against women on the Web. Women, Action and the Media launched
the campaign last week, urging major companies to pull their
advertisements from Facebook that could run alongside graphic
language and images of rape, abuse and other violence against
women. Heeding the call, more than a dozen advertisers, including
Nissan Motor Co. and Nationwide Building Society, removed their
ads from Facebook, while others, such as American Express and
Unilever's Dove brand, pressured Facebook Inc. to remove the
offending pages.
