LOL: 2020 Dem Ran Ads About Breaking Up Facebook's Monopoly....On Facebook

Sen. Warren' s presidential campaign ads includes the proposal of breaking-up of Facebook, Amazon, and Google and that audacious proposal led to Facebook deleting her ads from the platform.

The three ads that were taken down had the following message posted below them: "This ad was taken down because it goes against Facebook's advertising policies".

Facebook reinstated the ads on Monday, following reports on the removal, saying it wanted to allow for "robust debate".

The company, however, told Politico that it pulled the ads down because they violated its policies against the use of its corporate logo.

Though the ads were later restored, Warren said the episode demonstrates the need for a "social media marketplace that isn't dominated by a single censor"-a point that was echoed by critics of big tech's monopoly power".

Senator Warren recently caught a lot of attention when she announced that if elected in the 2020 elections, she would work on the break-up of the mega tech-giants by reversing large acquisitions.

"Facebook is letting us share our video again (thanks, by the way)", the email read.

Facebook owns other popular tech platforms, including photo-sharing site Instagram and messaging app WhatsApp, and Warren has argued the company has become too powerful.

A growing chorus of lawmakers is calling for regulators and representatives to rethink how they enforce the country's antitrust laws, especially on big tech companies like Facebook and Google, which were formerly the golden children of the USA economy.

"We must ensure that today's tech giants do not crowd out potential competitors, smother the next generation of great tech companies, and wield so much power that they can undermine our democracy", contends Sen.

"Curious why I think FB has too much power?" Elizabeth Warren's campaign that called for the breakup of Facebook, Amazon and Google. The service's advertising policies ban use of "f" or the Facebook logo in place of the word "Facebook".

Ads should not represent the Facebook brand in a way that makes it the most distinctive or prominent feature of the creative.

Facebook introduced new rules for political advertisers on its platform after it was revealed that a Russian government-linked group targeted Americans with Facebook ads in the run-up to the 2016 USA presidential election.

The ads apparently used Facebook's logo without permission.
