Facebook to lift ban on political ads Thursday
Facebook on Thursday will lift its temporary US ban on ads involving political, electoral and social issues, the social media giant said in an updated business page post Wednesday. Facebook put the ban in place to limit the spread of misinformation.
“We’ve heard a lot of feedback about this and learned more about political and electoral ads during this election cycle,” the post said. “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.”
