Facebook launches user review, potential bans for advertisers

Neighbourhood Technology Desk: Facebook said that on Tuesday it would allow users to review businesses that advertise on the social network and possibly ban those that receive the most negative feedback. Facebook users can leave feedback for their viewed ads under the “Ads Activity” tab, the company said in a blog post. Advertisers will be given a chance to improve before further action is taken, which might include a reduction in the amount of ads that particular business can run.

Move is aimed at cracking down on businesses whose ads mislead users into buying low quality goods or services or firms that fail to deliver products in their stated shipping time.  This is one of the many changes by the world’s largest social media network to enhance user experience and engagement after it was embroiled in a huge scandal where millions of users’ data was improperly accessed by a political consultancy.
