Some Facebook developers are receiving emails from Facebook to remove the Google AdSense ads they have on their apps, because Google has not signed its Platform Terms for Advertising Providers, reports Inside Facebook Blog.

Facebook issued a deadline of last month to remove ad providers that have not signed its Platform Terms for Advertising Providers. Google is one of those advertising platforms that have not signed those terms.

A post to the "Facebook Developers" Group explained that Facebook had contacted a developer with the request, and he was now seeking suggestions of which ad network to replace AdSense with. Facebook recently added 28 more ad providers to the whitelist, bringing the total count from which developers can choose to 72.

Kicking AdSense off of Facebook directly impacts developer business, though. Some might see the policy enforcement as the precursor to further restriction in the future, and could cite it as a reason why not to build on the Facebook Platform.

Here is a screen shot of the email:
