Facebook introduces new ad policies amid Russia probe
Facebook announced changes to its ad platform Monday that the tech giant says will help prevent misuse. The moves come as a part of the company’s response to allegations that groups tied to the Russian government used Facebook ads to influence the 2016 election. Facebook says that it will now have its human and machine reviewers more closely scrutinize the circumstances around an ad purchase, as well as the ad’s intended audience. Additionally, advertisers will have to confirm the organization that they represent before they can buy ads on Facebook.
