In this news, we discuss the Facebook extends ban on U.S. political ads for another month.
(Reuters) – Facebook Inc expects its post-election ban on political ads to last another month, according to an email the social media company sent to advertisers on Wednesday.
Facebook, which announced the ban as part of measures to combat disinformation on its site, had previously said the ban would last for at least a week but could be extended.
“Although several sources have projected a presidential winner, we still believe it is important to help avoid confusion or abuse on our platform,” Facebook said in the email, seen by Reuters.
