Facebook sanctions Netanyahu page for violating election rules

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Facebook has penalized a chatbot on the page of Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday after it violated a law prohibiting the publication of public opinion polls in the days leading up to an election.

Facebook said in a statement it had suspended the page “for violating local law” until polling stations close later in the day.

Netanyahu slammed social media giant Facebook for its action and called the step “disproportional” and “unjust,” claiming he was using it to ask users whom are they voting for and that his Likud party was being targeted by the country’s election commission.

“The chat bot is our way to talk to our supporters,” he lamented, “they took a five kilo hammer and used it to crush us in the Likud; we are in a difficult struggle.”

“I stand to so many pressures; Facebook doesn’t stand up to the pressure of the Left”, he added.
