In a statement made on Facebook’s corporate website, it was stated that attempts to sell land in the ecologically protected Amazons through Marketplace were blocked.
ANNOUNCED TO INSTAGRAM AND WHATSAPP
The statement also announced that Facebook will update the user policies of Instagram and Whatsapp to make it clear that the sale of ecological protected areas cannot be made.
THEY WILL BE CHECKED
From now on, sales via Facebook will be controlled through the United Nations Environment Program’s database of protected areas.
The BBC revealed that large lands in the Amazons were sold through the Facebook Marketplace.
Facebook was the target of criticism earlier this week when a former employee testified in the US Senate that the company preferred high profits over public safety, after which its services were cut for about 6 hours worldwide. (AA)
