New Facebook political ad rules: Now you must prove your ID before undermining democracy

Nate Amsden

what is a political ad?

I don't use facebook or instagram, but short of an ad going for or against a particular candidate(or perhaps a specific ballot measure) I wonder how they determine whether or not an ad is political. I suppose if they have politics related ad targeting that would be a sign as well, though that's independent of the ad content.
