Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Notice from the Publisher
Today, the Authorizations tab will appear in Page settings for all advertisers, however, only advertisers based in the US who want to run political ads are currently able to complete the process. We're starting in the US and expanding to the rest of the world in the coming months.

To get authorized, advertisers will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Page admins and ad account admins will submit their government-issued ID and provide a residential [?] mailing address for verification.
  2. We'll confirm each address by mailing a letter with a unique access code that only the admin's Facebook account can use.
  3. Advertisers will have to disclose who is paying for the ads.
Notice from the Publisher under separate cover

What is changing with political ads?
  • For US advertisers and advertisers targeting the US, starting in late spring, they'll need to be authorized in order to create and run political ads targeting the US.
  • For people using Facebook and Instagram, political ads will be seen with a new "Political Ad" header with a disclaimer showing the name of the funding source of the ad, as provided by the advertiser.
  • This summer we'll launch the Political Ad Archive. Ads that run with a political ad disclaimer will be stored in a searchable archive for a period of 7 years.
