Facebook apologized for publishing a dating ad featuring 17-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons, who committed suicide in April after being cyber-bullied. The social network said it banned the company that posted the ad.  “This is an extremely unfortunate example of an advertiser scraping an image from the Internet and using it in their ad campaign,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “This is a gross violation of our ad policies and we have removed the ad and permanently deleted the advertiser’s account.”
