BuzzFeed: A New Facebook Feature Shows Which Pro-Trump Facebook Pages Are Run From Overseas. “Facebook temporarily turned on a new feature that enabled users to see previously hidden information about a page, such as when it was created, how many people manage it, and where those people are based. This new information was briefly shown in a box called ‘Page History’ that was part of the ad transparency product the company is currently testing in Canada ahead of a rollout in the US in advance of the 2018 midterm elections. However, after being contacted about the Page History box by BuzzFeed News, Facebook turned off the entire ‘View Ads’ product in Canada.”
