Facebook Has Pulled Down Trump’s campaign Census Ads

Facebook has pulled down a large number of US President Donald Trump’s campaign census ads on its platform for going against its community standard on prohibiting misinformation related to the 2020 U.S. census.

The Trump’s campaign census ads, which were first spotted and reported by journalist Judd Legum, encouraged Facebook users to participate in the “Official 2020 Congressional District Census,” and redirected to a survey on the US President Trump campaign website.

The Facebook action against Trump’s campaign census ads became loud because the social media company hasn’t really been active in applying its policies on politicians and the moves.

But it looks like Facebook is determined to up its game now as it on Thursday confirmed it has pulled down the ads without a second thought.

“There are policies in place to prevent confusion around the official U.S. Census and this is an example of those being enforced,” Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone wrote in a statement.

Although Facebook had announced last year that it would ban census-related misinformation, in a new policy aimed to mirror its rules around voter suppression.

“We must do our part to ensure an accurate census count, which is critical for the distribution of federal funds, the apportioning of electoral representatives and the functioning of a democracy,” Facebook said then.
