    We look at Syria's presidential election. A confident Bashar al-Assad cast his ballot with supporters and even took a 'selfie'. He built a strong social media profile during the campaign, including on Facebook. Mark Zuckerburg has been criticised for taking Assad's ads. We look at an online petition - and video - calling on the Facebook CEO to reject Assad's money. Facebook says it has withdrawn the advertising and complies with all relevant Syrian sanctions.
