Facebook's searchable political ads archive is now global

Facebook has announced it's rolled out a basic layer of political ads transparency globally, more than a year after launching the publicly searchable ads archive in the US. It is also expanding what it dubs "proactive enforcement" on political ads to countries where elections or regulations are approaching -- starting with Ukraine, Singapore, Canada and Argentina. "Beginning today, we will systematically detect and review ads in Ukraine and Canada through a combination of automated and human review," it writes in a blog post setting out the latest developments.
