Facebook to tighten up on ads
WASHINGTON: Facebook is taking steps toward more transparency in the political ads on its site.
It is moving to verify advertisers and make it clearer who is spending money on ads.
The announcement comes just before next week’s congressional hearings on Russian interference in last year’s US elections.
Facebook executives say it will verify political ad buyers in national elections.
The site will also create new graphics where users can click on the ads and find out more about who’s behind them. – AP
