Watch: NAACP unpacks its meeting with Facebook, calls for more action
Welcome to Ad Age Remotely, a streamed segment focusing on the issues of the day.
Today we speak with Aba Blankson, senior VP, marketing and communications, NAACP.
The NAACP, Anti-Defamation League, Color of Change and Free Press met with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook executives earlier this week amid a campaign for brands to boycott the platform until more is done to curb hate speech and disinformation. The groups said immediately following the meeting that nothing came out of the conversation.
In this live episode, senior editor Jeanine Poggi speaks with Blankson on that meeting, what Facebook needs to do to win back advertisers and how brands should consider social media moving forward.
