( 2 images )(Reuters) - Facebook Inc will lift its temporary ban on political advertising in the United States on Thursday, the company said in a blog posthereon Wednesday.The social media giant has had a months-long freeze on political, electoral and social ads, which it introduced as part of an effort to crack down on misinformation and abuses around the Nov. 3 elections.
Facebook had temporarily lifted its ad pause in Georgia for the state’s January runoff elections but put it back in place.Alphabet Inc’s Google, which had lifted its own political ad ban in December, later reinstated it following the Jan. 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump. Google lifted the ban last week.
Democratic and Republican digital strategists have argued that such bans were overly broad and failed to combat the issue of organic misinformation on the platforms.Earlier on Wednesday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) issued a statement criticizing Facebook for not committing to a clear date to end the ban, saying the freeze had made it harder for campaigns and organizations to reach voters. headtopics.com
Facebook, which noted in its blog post that its systems do not distinguish between political and electoral ads and “social issue” ads, said it would look in the coming months at what other changes to its ads might be needed.Reporting by Elizabeth Culliford in New York, Eva Mathews in Bengaluru and Sheila Dang in Dallas; Editing by Aurora Ellis and Matthew LewisRead more: Reuters Top News »

They realized there no money to be made if politicians can't pay you money to lie Hey guys ✋ Please support true journalism Please subscribe our channel it needs only 1sec Your 1sec and 1 sub means a whole world to someone Thank you:) Facebook (and Twitter) has pretty much become a platform for conspiracy theories to spread. I'm all for free speech but that pertains to limits on congress and government, not companies. They need to clean up their house.
Facebook become a conservative platform . I am always blocked. From 2017 until now I have been blocked around one year. Some times they left block for 24 hours then start it again. FRANCE : Sir, it is time to use simple words: the president and his ministers are traitors to the nation and genocidal tyrants. Say it in unison. It will be an honest, fair, clear, strong and hopeful message because it will finally really mobilize.
Note that the ban ends on MARCH 4. wtf Facebook? I call it Hatebook now Facebook is a cesspool now. Facebook is one of the greatest threats to democracy. Now that they took over the power again through the democratic party ... Seems convenient ... You go, zuck! Dat hebben ze dus één hele senate runoff election volgehouden 👏👏👏
