AI and #StopHateForProfit

A movement by corporations and citizens for more responsible social platforms with civil rights infrastructure

A recent move has seen large corporations joining a protest against Facebook’s behaviour and their alleged lack of responsibility. Brands as big as Coca-Cola has paused their ad spending globally on Facebook for a month.

Facebook spokesperson said in an email to The Verge:

The campaign seems to have been started, or at least gained momentum, by popular sports and outdoor lifestyle brands like The North Face and Patagonia.

It is interesting to see large corporations using AI being put under pressure to be more responsible and it may be a good trend if more companies are willing to do the same.
