Seeing several posts today about “how much Facebook is doing to fight that darn Donald Trump”. Seems to me like someone’s trying to change the narrative.


Smells like astroturfing around Reddit frontpage this morning.


“several ads” wow, good job Facebook…


I work in Facebook advertising. Facebook removes tons of our ads that aren’t even bad and are slight variations of ads that they allow. This is not news. Keywords (especially since COVID) alone can trigger the ad review process. Even some weird ones like “symbol” or referencing the user too frequently or referencing their personal attributes. All things that can get ads removed. Then you delete it, try again and see what happens. Often changing just one word will get it to pass. So this is not like a radical “we’re stopping trump” like I bet Facebook wants it to sound.
