Puputulin na ng messaging app na Viber ang business ties nila sa Facebook dahil sa umano’y hindi pag-aksiyon ng huli laban sa violent posts tungkol kay US President Donald Trump.
Ayon sa chief executive ng Rakuten Viber na si Djamel Agaoua, ang kanilang desisyon ay dahil sa “Poor judgment in understanding its role in today’s world.”
Nu’ng Miyerkules ay inalis na ng Viber ang lahat ng advertisement ng Facebook at sister app nitong Instagram.
Saad ni Agaoua, “Facebook continues to demonstrate poor judgment in understanding its role in today’s world. From the company’s mishandling of data and lack of privacy in its apps, to its outrageous stand of avoiding the steps necessary to protect the public from violent and dangerous rhetoric, Facebook has gone too far.
“It’s something that will hurt some of our users [who] like to use the Facebook Connect solutions to log in. It’s hurt some of our marketing strategies, because they won’t be able to use Facebook advertising to promote their campaigns. It’s not an easy decision. It’s not going to kill Viber, but it hurts.
“We are not the arbiters of truth, but the truth is some people are suffering from the proliferation of violent content and companies must take a clear stand.”
