Why Facebook’s ad revenue growth has slowed in the face of fake news


The ad revenue on Facebook for all its news articles has slowed to a trickle in the past two months, according to data compiled by The Washington Times.

While ad revenue was up last year by about 4 percent, in 2016 it was up by about 9 percent.

The Times analyzed data from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Trade Committee, and Kantar Media’s The Score to estimate the impact of fake and misleading news on readers.

Facebook is a global company that is subject to all applicable advertising rules, and advertisers must abide by those rules.

Advertising on Facebook does not require users to click on a link or accept a cookie, so it’s unlikely that any of Facebook’s ads are being targeted by fake news.

The advertising revenue on all Facebook articles, including its paid-for sponsored stories, is about $1 billion a month.

But the amount of fake ads on Facebook has been growing at a slower pace, as a recent BuzzFeed analysis of Facebook data shows.

BuzzFeed reported that in January, Facebook had posted $2.5 billion worth of fake advertising, and in February it had posted more than $1.3 billion worth.

Advertisers on Facebook are able to choose which ads appear on their sites.

Facebook’s advertising rules allow advertisers to target their ads to the people who they think will read their ads, without having to have the ads appear in the users’ feeds.

But BuzzFeed’s analysis shows that, as of April 10, Facebook’s paid-to-publish sponsored posts had about 6,700 ads on its sites.

The BuzzFeed report found that advertisers have paid $9 million to $15 million each for those ads.

Facebook has since rolled out a new policy to prohibit ads from appearing in user feeds that do not appear in news feeds, but BuzzFeed’s data showed that the policy hasn’t been implemented to Facebook’s full benefit.

Facebook declined to comment for this story.

BuzzFeed’s report also found that the ads on the pages of the news sites it analyzed were sponsored by third parties and that many of those ads had been paid for.

The ads are displayed by Facebook’s news feeds.

The stories on those pages are also sponsored by Facebook.

The advertiser in question paid $1,200 to $1 — or roughly $500 per story — to advertise a specific ad on a news page, according the BuzzFeed report.

The ad was displayed to a user on the page and appeared to be sponsored by the same third-party that was paid $500 to advertise the same ad on the news page.

BuzzFeed analyzed ad revenue for the six news sites the BuzzFeed reported on, and found that Facebook ads were up about 6 percent from last year.

BuzzFeed said that the advertising revenue for most of the articles in the six BuzzFeed News stories that were analyzed was $1 million or less.

The data shows that Facebook has spent about $600 million since February on paid ads on news pages, but it’s unclear if the company has been able to make any real impact on the content of the stories.

BuzzFeed also found evidence that Facebook’s artificial intelligence system had been using false information to push advertisements.

BuzzFeed found that in February, Facebook used fake data to target ads to people who might not have ever clicked on a Facebook ad.

Facebook said that it was trying to make ads more relevant to readers and to limit fake news from being used.

The company said it’s working on ways to improve the algorithm and to detect fake news before it’s displayed.

BuzzFeed did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Facebook recently announced changes to its advertising rules that will ban the promotion of fake content and ads, but the company hasn’t provided a timeline for the changes.
