Facebook has allowed users to block political advertising

Facebook announced that users will now be able to block political advertising on the platform.

A new feature is launched in Facebook, and Instagram. Users will get access to it in the coming weeks.

In this case, it will be possible to block specific ads from both (via the menu next to them), and all this on the political themes (in the Ads Preferences).

In the first phase this feature will be available in the US, and in the autumn will be expanded to other countries.

Facebook also launched the Voting Information Center (Information Center of the vote). In the new section, users can find information on where and how they can vote.

Recall that in 2018 Facebook introduced a mandatory verification for those political advertisers.
