Facebook tightens rules on political ads ahead of EU vote

Facebook toughened its rules on political advertising in Europe on Friday under pressure from EU regulators. The company said all such ads will be labeled as ’paid for’, offering info on who bought it, for how much and how many people have seen it. Also, only advertisers located and authorized in a given country will be able to run political ads or issue ads there.

...only advertisers located and authorized in certain country will be given permission. Don't know about you, but I don't want to trust my government to determine who is eligible for permission.

Of course only matters now because of Brexit and trump. For Obama and all the great progressive themes it was anything goes, they were aligned on some issues with Facebook and its founder.

Why help an organization that will fine you in the billions. If zeckerberg had any sense, he'd let whatever opinion appear on facebitch.

I used to envy Europeans born in the land of our ancestors but more and more I thank my great-grandparents for legally migrating to the US.
