Hi there. Welcome to Hopps where we try to answer commonly asked questions. And under two minutes, the question we're going to answer today is How Do I Post Political Ads That Do Not Violate Facebook's Policies?
So when you're on Facebook, so first of all, go to business.facebook.com, go to the top left, where it says business tools and click on ads manager.
Now, if you never ran an ad on Facebook, or if you've never selected this option at the top here before, then you're going to want to go ahead and look into this.
This says, does your business account focused on politics or in advocating for issues of national importance? We'll use this information to improve the quality of ads shown to people.
Now I highly recommend you clicking yes for this. Here's why they're going to configure your account so that you are primed for political, um, you know, political ads, right?
So they're going to show you more people that are focused on this matter. They're going to really optimize your account for this sort of niche, right?
So that will be a way of being on the Facebook side when it comes to politics, right? Another thing you can do, and we're going to look at it a little bit together is the policies now, why am I bringing you to the policies for the Facebook ads?
Because you know, so many people come to me and they have questions online about how to avoid getting banned from Facebook, or how do I not have, you know, violate their policies?
How about just read their policies, right? Because if something does happen and you do get in trouble with Facebook or, you know, quote-unquote, violate their policies, then you can use this as evidence that you clearly did not violate their policies, right?
So you need to make sure that you read the policies. Advertisers can run ads about social issues, elections or politics provided the advertiser compile or complies with all applicable laws.
Any authorization process required by Facebook was appropriate. Facebook may restrict issue electoral or political ads. In addition, certain contact related to elections may be prohibited in specific regions ahead of voting.
And you can read more information about this and anything else to do with politics. I highly advise you to read about this stuff because it will save you a ton of time.
