Facebook advertising VP steps down

Facebook’s vice president of advertising Rob Goldman is departing after more than seven years in the role.

Goldman announced his exit on Twitter. He didn’t reveal the reason behind his departure.

He has been with the social media giant since 2012, overseeing the Cambridge Analytica scandal which exploited people’s data to target them with political ads.

Goldman came under heat following the release of the Mueller Report, which investigated Russian interference in the US 2016 election, where he appeared to downplay the impact Russian interference had in the election results.

Recently, Facebook has been under criticism for introducing a policy that allows false information in political advertising ahead of the US elections next year.
