VentureBeat: Facebook releases its U.S. political ad archive

VentureBeat: Facebook releases its U.S. political ad archive. “The archive contains both ads promoting candidates for political office as well as those that Facebook has deemed to be ‘issue ads’ — ads that touch on a list of 20 hot-button topics that Facebook released earlier this month. These ads will also be labeled in users’ news feeds starting today, with a ‘paid for by’ tag. Political and issue ads on Instagram will also be labeled.”
