Facebook performs U-turn after removing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's ads calling for break up of social media giant and Amazon and Google because they have 'bulldozed the competition and used private information for profit'

Facebook has performed a U-turn after removing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's ads calling for the break up of the social media giant and Amazon and Google.

Warren, who launched the ads as part of her presidential campaign, claimed that the three tech companies had 'bulldozed the competition' and 'used private information for profit'.

In one of the removed videos, Warren said: 'We all use them. But in their rise to power, they've bulldozed the competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field in their favor.'

The ad went on to talk about Facebook's merger with potential competitor WhatsApp, as well as claiming that Google selectively promotes its own products over competitors.
