‘Firm hired PR agency to smear critics’

Facebook investors have called on the company’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg to step down as chairman following reports that the company hired a public relations firm to smear its critics, a media report said.



The New York Times recently published a report revealing that Facebook at times smeared critics as anti-Semitic or tried to link activists to billionaire investor George Soros, and tried to shift public anger away toward rival tech firms.

It also said that the company used a Republican public relations firm, Definers Public Affairs, to help repair its battered reputation following intense criticism of the social media platform’s handling of a scandal over Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections and the Cambridge Analytica scandal, The Telegraph reported.
