Facebook to block foreign advertisements in Irish abortion referendum
The company said it would rely on reports from established campaign groups on both sides of the campaign to identify foreign-based ads, as its automated election integrity tools are still in development. On April 25, the company launched a trial of a `view ads` tool, which allows users to view all of the ads any advertiser is running on Facebook in Ireland at the same time.
Facebook will no longer accept advertisements from outside Ireland related to the country`s May 25 abortion referendum, the U.S. firm said on Tuesday, in its latest move to boost the transparency of its political advertising. Image source: Reuters
