Facebook has stopped accepting new political advertisements on October 27 as part of measures to prevent the legitimacy of the US presidential election.However, advertisements approved before this day will be displayed until the day of the election.
Facebook has revealed on an official blog that some of the "technical issues" of the company's systems have been accidentally stopped after a new restriction on advertisements was introduced.The advertiser also had problems that could not change the ad.Some ads were blocked by changing the target audience just before the deadline.
Both camps have erupted concerns about the system errors, assuming Facebook introduces rules that can lead to one camp in important days before the election.
Facebook said on the official blog, "There is no stop or rejected ad due to consideration to one or or any of the party.It is affecting advertising by the presidential election camp without being biased. "The company recently announced that after the voting on November 3, "to reduce the possibility of confusion and abuse," it temporarily stopped all US social issues, elections or politics -related ads.
As of the 30th, the two camps stated that there was still a problem with advertising on Facebook.
Biden's candidate camp estimated that the donation was more than $ 500,000 (about 52.3 million yen) less than planned due to Facebook's advertisements for collecting funds.
According to the statement of Biden's candidate, "It is unknown at the moment whether Facebook is handling this matter in the presidential election in the presidential election, but has been preparing for four years since the previous election.Nevertheless, it is clear that Facebook is completely inadequate for the presidential election. "
Samantha Zager, a spokeswoman at the TRUMP camp, said on Tuesday that banning new advertisements restricted the ability to communicate the people about important issues, such as economic growth and rebuttal to Biden candidates.
"Silicon Valley's mafia has further strengthened the pressure and made it impossible to post a reviewed advertisement a few days before many Americans voted," said Zager, saying, "This is not a coincidence. Facebook is not a coincidence., We block our election ads in line with the unreasonable rules of our company. The reason is simply because the company is working to be disadvantaged by President TRUMP.It is an obstruction. "
ELANA Widmann, a spokeswoman for Facebook, said, "Most of the advertisements that have been intentionally stopped are now open to the public," We work directly with the camps of both candidates.We are dealing with the remaining advertising issues. "
According to Facebook's political advertising database, BIDEN's Facebook page is $ 95 million for social issues, politics and election ads from May 2018 to October 28, 2020.It is said that he has thrown above.Trump's Facebook page has more than $ 18 billion (about 11.3 billion yen) on these ads during the same period.
