Facebook Political Ads – level 1

18-09-2019 07:00

People can advertise on Facebook. Some advertisements are political. The political advertisers must tell Facebook who they are. They also must say where they are. However, some advertisers give fake information.

This year, the advertisers must give Facebook more information. Facebook is doing this to make sure that the advertisers are real. If everything is fine, Facebook calls them a “Confirmed Organization.” This way, people know that the political organization is real. People can ask the advertisers questions, too.

Difficult words: advertise (put up advertisements [ads], something which tells you what to think/buy/do), advertiser (a person or organization who advertises something), confirmed (real, true, not fake).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
