Turning Off Facebook Political Ads.

Facebook updates its popular Facebook and Instagram apps allowing users to disable political ads. The change comes along a larger effort. The Californian-based social media conglomerate aims to help over 4 million U.S. citizens to register to vote for the upcoming presidential elections. That’s mainly because of the impact of COVID-19, that will most likely cause changes in the voting process and many citizens will be encouraged to cast their vote from their homes.

The new Facebook Political Ads controls are rolling out as we speak. In the first stage only Facebook and Instagram users from the United States will be able to notice them. The social media giant plans to expand the feature to other countries that allow enforcement on ads about elections, politics and social issues.
