Facebook Announces New Ad Policy Which Eliminates User Data From Third Party Networks


Facebook is finally taking strong actions against ad networks that have been abusing the platform and starting August 3rd will have new advertising guidelines according to Nick Gianos of Facebook. According to the new policy, “ads that display user data are not allowed in Platform applications unless specifically approved by Facebook”. This is a huge policy shift and it’s one that could significantly effect the platform ecosystem as I’ve been writing over the past couple weeks.

Within the next day Facebook will announce the new ad guidelines but it’s clear that Facebook is going to get aggressive in order to protect the user experience and I applaud them for doing so.
