Facebook seeks post verification for us election ads
facebook plans to send postcards in the us mail in order to verify the location of people requesting to buy adverts related to us election candidates.
katie harbath, a director at facebook, said at a conference that a postcard would be sent to the advertiser's address with a code, which they would need to share to complete the booking.
facebook is part of the us investigation into election meddling.
thirteen russians have been charged with interfering in the 2016 election.
the fbi indictment states that they posed as americans and spent thousands of dollars each month buying political advertising, as well as setting up groups on social media sites including facebook and instagram.
russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov dismisses the charges as "blather." ms harbath later told reuters that the move "won't solve everything" and did not say when the postcard verification process might begin.
the firm has been contacted by the bbc for comment. -bbc
“this will be the last mass shooting...” i wish that would’ve came out of a policy maker’s mouth, instead of a teen who’s had to endure her friends being shot just days ago.
you are a badass emma. 👏
thank you for speaking out so eloquently and being so strong after undergoing something a teen should never have to go through. enough is enough. as a citizen, i will make sure to give my vote to someone who cares about gun violence.
I was honored to meet presidential candidate teddy yesterday. most stable posture of any president. sacrifices many bellyrubs to work hard for those he represents. surrounds himself with the goodest doggos. truly the greatest president we'll ever have. @teddy4president good luck in 2020
#ЦифраДня Согласно данным, опубликованным Министерством юстиции США, начиная с 2014 года ежемесячный бюджет российской "фабрики троллей" составлял около 73 миллионов рублей (а также около 1 миллиона бонусных выплат). В пятницу следственная группа под руководством специального прокурора Роберта Мюллера предъявила 13 гражданам России и трем российским компаниям обвинения в незаконном вмешательстве в избирательную кампанию в США.
Zulmy, our very first mover, watching her video with family. she's too young to vote - so she moved 23 people to vote in her local election! young people have the right to live & love & learn without fear - and the right to a government that values them.
@perrytal is our music supervisor and everything-else-supervisor too! she's a gifted violinist who makes sure her love @henriqueeisenmann puts the right feeling into each score for our videos. she throws her whole heart into all she does & and we're blessed to have her on our team. we love her 💕
So, i was taking a jog this morning and just so happened to bump into california’s next senator @hartsonforca (www.alisonhartson.com 👀 seems like the real deal 👍). repostby @alisonforca: "a new dawn, a new day
while there are many motivators for candidates - there’s usually just one that truly drives them.
for me, it’s making sure that the working class has one of their own seated at the table.
i’m running for the u.s. senate because california deserves a true progressive who is unbeholden to corporate special interests and big money politics.
if we hope to flip the script on our politics, we have to go about it differently. that's why our campaign is not taking a dime from corporations or their pacs.
the system as it currently stands leaves far too many of us out in the cold. we’re going to be campaigning with a new play, talking politics in a new way and organizing for a new day.
take a look at our launch video.
we're just getting started.
