Facebook is not only one of the largest, but also one of the most controversial, companies that the technology industry has to offer. After the Cambridge Analytica scandal made waves in 2018 and the upcoming cryptocurrency Libra came under criticism last year, Mark Zuckerberg's handling of phenomena like racism on his platform is the dominant topic this year. Not only did this result in a loss of $ 53 billion on the stock exchange, many companies also withdraw their Facebook ads.

The list of companies affected is now quite long and includes well-known names such as Coca Cola, Verizon, Unilever, Mozilla and Henkel. Microsoft has also announced in an internal memo from marketing boss Chris Capossela, which has been confirmed as genuine by the industry service Bloomberg, to the employees that it will no longer display its advertisements on Facebook until August at least. Capossela cites Facebook's handling of hate speech, pornography and terrorist content as the main reasons. Financially, Microsoft makes a big difference. With a budget of $ 116 million, Redmond was the third largest contributor to the network last year.

Overall, this is certainly a welcome step by the Redmond company, but it should continue to trigger a bland aftertaste among employees and at least certain end customers who also have a stronger bond with Microsoft. The collaboration between Xbox and Facebook Gaming is more of a side note, but it is also known that the actual demand from employees, activists and civil rights organizations is another that would send a much stronger signal: the termination of the cooperation with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE for short, a police and customs agency that is subordinate to the U.S. Department of State. It remains to be seen whether Microsoft will actually abandon these USD 8 million contracts.
