Google stops alcohol ads

Search engine operator and online marketing company Google has decided to stop advertisements of alcohol and alcoholic beverages in Finland from Tuesday, reported the Financial Times.  The decision follows introduction of a new rule by Google in its advertisement policy that bans advertisement of alcoholic products. The ban will be also applicable in China, Poland, Vietnam, and South Korea. Google decided to ban advertisements of alcoholic products on its own volition, its product manager Sami Kankkuan said, adding that no country had directed them in this regard.
