Facebook tightens issue ads, political ads to prevent election interference
Advertisers who want to run political or issue ads on Facebook now must have their identity and location verified, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a post Friday.

"Any advertiser who doesn't pass will be prohibited from running political or issue ads," wrote Zuckerberg, who is scheduled to appear before Congress next week. "We will also label them and advertisers will have to show who paid for them. We're starting this in the U.S. and expanding to the rest of the world in the coming months."
