Meta Allows Ads Claiming Rigged 2020 Election

Meta executives, considering free-speech concerns, have updated policies to restrict ads questioning the legitimacy of past elections, a move influencing organic political content on Facebook. Changes align with broader shifts in social media platforms ahead of the 2024 U.S. presidential election, but critics argue it challenges free speech. Layoffs affecting Meta’s election policy team have led to slower response times, impacting ad approval. The company’s decision not to determine the legitimacy of past elections, citing historical cases like the 2000 and 1960 U.S. elections, reflects an effort to create a timeless policy across countries.
