Come August 1, the unofficial end date to the advertising and marketing boycott of Facebook by brands unhappy about the hateful speech and misinformation on the platform, most agencies will reanimate their marketing on the platform.
In a new survey conducted in July, Digiday found that 41% of respondents will return at the end of the July boycott, while 26% will spend again by the end of the third quarter and 13% by the end of full-year 2020.
