For all the wrong reasons..

Facebook put on an upbeat presentation to advertisers on Tuesday, the same day the clothing chain Eddie Bauer, the film distributor Magnolia Pictures and the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream brand announced that they would stop advertising on the platform through July.

Those companies joined Patagonia, the North Face, REI and others in a growing boycott that has targeted Facebook’s content moderation practices.

Apparently because Facebook aren't doing enough to censor their content.

Just another marketing ploy ?

Save a months advertising budget and get yourselves spread across the media ? 

Apparently 80% of Facebook ad revenue comes from "small businesses" so this seems unlikely to hurt them financially..

Was going to say I never see adverts from these large companies on Facebook, or if I do I take no notice of them at all. What I do see constantly are smaller companies trying to get a foot hold in the market.
