Facebook is looking to avoid YouTube’s pitfalls by providing marketers a slew of tools to keep their ads away from less desirable content

Facebook wants to prove that it has the technology chops to address marketers’ brand-safety concerns — before something really bad happens.

The tech giant is rolling out new tools to monitor when ads might appear next to dicey content — think a graphic video or a controversial news site like Breitbart.
