Facebook Accused of climate change misinformation

Facebook has been accused of letting fossil fuel companies spread misinformation through advertising, according to a new analysis by climate change thinktank InfluenceMap.‘Despite Facebook’s public support for climate action, it continues to allow its platform to be used to spread fossil fuel propaganda,’ said Bill Weih. A Facebook representative said that multiple ads had been rejected for not having the proper political ad authorisation, and that action had been taken against the responsible users. Do you think that Facebook is trying to balance between revenue and climate advocacy ?
