'Disappointing' Zuckerberg meeting fails to yield results, say Facebook boycott organizers

Source: The Guardian

The organizers behind a major advertiser boycott of Facebook have called a meeting with Mark Zuckerberg and other executives “disappointing”, saying the company failed to commit to concrete solutions for addressing hate speech and misinformation on the platform.

Officials at Facebook, including Zuckerberg, the CEO, and Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer, met with members of the coalition of civil rights groups over video chat for an hour on Tuesday to discuss the largest boycott in Facebook history, which has gained the support of more than 1,000 of its advertisers, including Unilever, Coca-Cola, and Starbucks.

Facebook showed up to this meeting expecting a grade A for attendance

But the company offered little in terms of concrete solutions, said Rashad Robinson of the Color of Change, one of the groups calling on advertisers to suspend spending as part of the campaign, known as Stop Hate for Profit.

4. Fuckerberg only sees $$$

Zuckerberg & Sandberg met with civil rights leaders.
• FB reverted to “spin.”
• “Same old talking points."
• “They showed up to the meeting expecting an A for attendance. Attending alone is not enough.”

I hope Warren is on the next cabinet and nails Fuckerberg and Sandberg.

5. He still thinks they need him more than he needs them

He has met with Trump several times, and is apparently not concerned with dedicating efforts to remove hate as part of the upcoming election.

7. I would love to stop but...

10. yep, me too

seemed like a bad idea at the time and now it's even worse.

However, I can refuse to participate in anything to do with Facebook, which I regularly do. "Visit us on Facebook." Nope, not ever.

8. They're trying to play by the same playbook as they did in 2016, but it's backfiring.

12. Disappointing meeting with a disappointing human.

He may have won at money, but he has no soul, or even the comprehension of what ethics are.
