You’ll soon see fewer political ads on Facebook

    The social network has extended its controversial measures implemented in the US to Spain

    Facebook has extended the controls that allow users to see fewer ads on social issues, elections or politics, both on the homonymous social network and on Instagram, which are available in more than 90 countries, including Spain.

    In June, in preparation for the US elections, the company introduced new mechanisms that allowed users to “deactivate” electoral, political or social advertisements.

    Those mechanisms have been expanded this Thursday to more than 90 countries, including Spain, where advertisers must obtain authorization and add ‘Paid for’ disclaimers to run such ads on Facebook and Instagram.

    “People have told us that they want the option of seeing fewer political ads on Facebook and Instagram, so now more people around the world can make that decision,” they say from the company in an update on its official blog.
