Facebook's 'Custom Audiences' Program Holds Advertisers Responsible

Facebook is looking to crack down on advertisers as part of Facebook's 'Custom Audiences' program. The new initiative is set to fight against predatory advertisers that push products and services without consent. The social media giant's current advertising system matches users with advertisers, allowing the latter to target individuals on the social network. The update to this service will require advertisers to pledge the received permission to use the data.

The Custom Audiences program was initiated by Facebook following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and the company hopes that its new efforts will better protect users. The new service is set to better protect user's emails and personal data and will ensure that companies can no longer take advantage of Facebook users. The program is still in development, but Facebook hopes that its new system will be implemented in the near future.
