there's that whole facebook free speech thing
wonder how much money it scammed from people who thought they were donating to trump?
New York (CNN Business)Even as its executives were out fiercely defending its policies on political ads this month, Facebook (FB) was allowing an obviously fake page that purported to be linked to President Trump's reelection campaign to run ads on its platform. The ads directed users to an online donation portal that claimed to be a way to donate to the Trump campaign.
The Trump campaign told CNN on Wednesday that the page, called "DonaldTrumpCampaign," was not affiliated with the real campaign and called it a "scam." After CNN contacted Facebook for comment, the company removed the page, saying it broke the platform's rules on impersonation. The page's permissions to run political ads had been "mistakenly applied," Facebook said.
seems the same 'bad actor' was running something on instagram, too. paypal was collecting the money for an address given that turned out to be a grocery store where no one knew about the scam.
