The very essence of PickFu surveys is to welcome a wide array of perspectives in the belief that doing so makes for better business decisions. However, Facebook has made poor decisions in allowing bigotry, voter suppression, antisemitism, and incitement of violence to proliferate on its worldwide network.

Until further notice, PickFu is pausing all paid advertising on Facebook and its properties, including Instagram and the Facebook Audience Network. We will continue our organic, non-paid community-building for the benefit of our customers. We encourage Facebook to implement meaningful change to fight racism and misinformation.
