News: Facebook to lift ban on political ads in United States.
(Reuters) – Facebook Inc will lift the ban on political advertising in the US on March 4th, the company said in a blog post here on Wednesday.
The social media giant temporarily banned political, election and social ads in November to combat misinformation and abuse related to the elections.
Facebook Advertisers who have completed an authorization process can submit new ads on politics, elections, and social issues, or edit existing ads to come back on.
