Facebook boycott leaders disappointed after meeting with Zuckerberg, Sandberg

What began as a relatively small effort by activist organizations to hold Facebook accountable for perceived policy failings has snowballed into a mass corporate backlashand a rare moment of discomfort for a company that enjoys its status as one of techs untouchable giants.
As the #StopHateforProfit campaign continues to attract surprisingly mainstream corporations to its boycott of Facebook advertising, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and the newly back-at-Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox sat down with the group on Tuesday. Other members of the policy team and and one more member of Facebooks product team were also present for the meeting, which lasted a little over an hour.
Following the conversation with Facebooks uppermost leadership echelon, leaders from four of the organizations spearheading the boycott called the chat an unequivocal disappointment. Today we saw little and heard just about nothing, Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said. Greenblatt also expressed disappointment that Facebook fails to apply energy and urgency to issues like hate and misinformation that it brings to scaling its massively successful online ad platform.
