Google introduces new policies for United States election ad transparency

Chicago Mayor Daley Announces Initiative With Google

He has asserted that the advertisers, willing to publish political advertise, will have to confirm their USA permanent citizenship, which is mandatory by the law.

Google has announced new election advertisement policies rolling out this week. The report will link to a searchable library where anyone can discover more information about the election ads purchased on Google and who paid for them.

This means advertisers will have to provide a government-issued ID and other key information.

Google had promised to tighten security and increase election ad transparency past year, and to follow up on its promises it has now put in place new policies to make political ads more transparent than ever before.

Hawaii volcano destroys 26 homes, shoots lava 200 feet into the air
Retreat owners Noah and Laura Dawn told The Associated Press that they were planning to relocate up the coast indefinitely. Video posted on social media showed lava spewing several feet into the air from a new crackin a Leilani Estates street.

"Our work on elections goes far beyond improving policies for advertising", boasts Walker.

Google said it's also working across various industries to help strengthen protections around elections.

The move comes in the wake of strong evidence that Russian Federation used social media and online ads in an attempt to influence the 2016 US Presidential election.

The company has also partnered with the National Cyber Security Alliance and Digital Democracy Project at the Belfer Center at Harvard Kennedy School to fund security training programs for elected officials, campaigns, and staff members.

Q1 2018: Apple sells 4 of the top 5 smartphones globally
Well, according to stats from Strategy Analytics , Apple's iPhones have sold the most in the first quarter of 2018. Those were the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and the latter of these racked up 17.4-million units shipped.

Google also supports the "Disinfo Lab" at the Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center.

While Facebook may have their issues with political ads well in hand, Google has been somewhat silent on the issue.

The move comes after Russians used social media platforms to buy ads and spread content to influence the 2016 presidential election - a move intelligence officials said could put future USA elections at risk. Cambridge Analytica, a consulting company that worked with Donald Trump's election team harvested data from 87 million U.S. citizens' Facebook profiles, according to The Guardian.

Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO Facebook, was also criticized by Congress and others for Facebook's election ad failings in 2016 and the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal. This data was later used to profile and influence American voters.

Unemployment rate falls in April
