Not sure if UKC will deem it worthy of a separate news article, but for anyone who hasn't already seen it:

"Several companies have suspended advertising on Facebook over the company’s failure to address hate speech on the platform.

The outdoor apparel and product retailers the North Face, REI, and Patagonia have pledged not to pay for advertising on Facebook platforms as part of the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign, launched Wednesday by advocacy groups including the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, and the Color Of Change. The freelance job listing site Upwork and the internet company Mozilla have also joined the pledge."
