“I don’t like” for the ad misleading

In an article published Tuesday, the director of product management of Facebook, Rob Leathern, has written that they want the users still to discover and learn new financial products and services through more relevant ads. That said, there are still companies that serve ads related to ICO fraudulent.
A decision in favour of the development of crypto-currencies
The ads posted on Facebook disadvantage of the crypto-currencies. Scams such as Bitconnect and Arise Bank are now allowed to develop on platforms such as Facebook. The advertising policy of this social media is particularly difficult. The list of foods and dietary supplements that he will not tell you, for example, is very broad. And it also seems to be a problem with the display of certain content.
