The UK is being bombarded with hyper-targeted adverts on Facebook potentially costing millions of pounds. They have one aim -- to influence the way you will vote.
Political ads online are designed to manipulate you and millions of other voters. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Facebook could temporarily ban these sinister adverts and help make sure our election is free and fair -- for everyone.
If we all send emails to senior Facebook executives like Sheryl Sandberg, its Chief Operating Officer, we can push them to protect the UK general election from misleading ads.
They’ve already come under intense pressure from politicians from all over Europe to do more about fake news and protecting elections. Our voices might be the tipping point for them to finally take action -- and we don't have much time.
