FB, Twitter plan new ways to regulate political ads San Francisco: Facebook and Twitter announced its plans on Thursday to increase transparency of political campaign ads, changes aimed at preventing foreign manipulation of the coming midterm elections. Facebook said it would begin including a “paid for” label on the top of any political ads in the United States. Clicking on the label will take people to a page where they can view the cost of the ad and the demographic breakdown of the audience that viewed the ad. Facebook also promised to keep an archive of all political ads for the next seven years, or through a full congressional election cycle. The ads are available to Facebook members at facebook.com/politicalcontentads. Twitter said it planned to restrict who could run political ads on its service, requiring those running political ads for federal elections to identify themselves and certify that they are in the United States. Foreign nationals will not be able to target political ads to people in the United States, Twitter said. Twitter said it would also start giving prominent visual cues, including a badge and a disclaimer, to campaign ads. Accounts used for political cam- paigning must have a proﬁle photo and other markers consistent with those of the campaign they are associated with, and any advertiser’s Twitter biography must include a website that gives valid contact information. Candidates and political committees will be required to pro- vide their identiﬁcation number from the Federal Election Commission. Those who are not registered must submit a notarized form. Enforcement of the policy will begin this summer. “We are committed to enforcing stricter policies for political advertisers and providing clear, transparent disclosure for all ads on Twitter, with more details for political campaigning ads,” said a statement from Vijaya Gadde, who runs Twitter’s legal and public policy teams, and Bruce Falck, its general manager of revenue product. Twitter’s adjustments are similar to efforts by Facebook to verify political ads on its platform. Both companies have faced extended criticism in Washington for allowing Russians to use them to try to manipulate the 2016 presidential election. Some lawmakers have called for laws that require disclosures like those that Face- book and Twitter are promising. In April, Facebook began requiring proof that people posting an ad related to a political campaign in the United States are in the country — by giving the last four digits of their Social Security number, a picture of a government-issued identiﬁcation and a U.S. mailing address. Facebook said it would mail a person a code that authorized him or her to buy Facebook political ads once the company had veriﬁed the other information. Facebook is also promoting its other efforts to combat false information on the site. Continued on Page 4
