The social media giant banned political and social issue-related ads in early November in an effort to curb misinformation around the general election. But the pause on political ads extended deep into the first months of the Biden administration, only partially lifted ahead of the Georgia Senate runoffs in early January.

Facebook will now return political ads to its platform, one of the largest and most cost-effective ways for campaigns to reach voters and potential supporters.Digital strategists in both parties were sharply critical of Facebook's decisionto cut off access to voters for the last several months, upending off-year campaign strategies. headtopics.com

In an email sent to clients on Wednesday, Facebook representatives said, “while we are lifting the ad pause, our work is not over.”“For the past several years, we invested heavily to fight misinformation, voter suppression and election interference, and remain committed to removing and reducing this type of content while connecting people with reliable information across our apps,” the email continued, signed by two Facebook partners. “As a result, we plan to use the coming months to take a closer look at how these ads work on our service to see where further changes may be merited.”

Facebook and Google — responsible for billions of dollars in digital political ad spending during the 2020 cycle — both instituted bans around the 2020 election., cutting off a key communication tool between campaigns and voters ahead of state elections in Virginia and New Jersey this year, as well as municipal races around the country.

Facebook and trump own Jan 6th. Choosing March 4th, in lieu of QAnon followers beliefs, is just a little odd. Maybe more than just a little? I wondered how long Zuck was going to let all that political money go. Not. Long. Enough. The political season in the US is waaaaaaaaay too long! Ban them another year!

Does this mean they'll stop throwing me in jail for petty shit? Probably not. OFFS Well, maybe it’s time to dump FaceBook entirely. Just wait until they come out with “We think he learned his lesson” a la Susan Collins and give Orange Gollum his FB access back. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Apparently, Facebook is in the business of politics.

With this news I believe Facebook should be shut down. 03/03/2021 | MEGA CULTO GLOBAL DE QUARTA-FEIRA - OS PROFETAS DO SENHOR DeleteFacebook Something evil this way comes...🤨 Facebook Would FB ban political ads spreading misinformation and disinformation or does it want to remind Congress about changing the Section 230?

So they take a stand when no one is running for office but as soon as that sweet campaign money is about to roll out they reverse their policy. That’s one heck of a stance right there. 🤦‍♂️ Maybe they should wait until Q's 3/20 bizzaro revolution date pt. 3. Interesting date.
