Facebook has been accused of many things from violating the privacy of individuals, to abusing their monopoly and being the platform for the spread of fake news.

Now with India’s elections coming up Facebook has brought in a string of new changes to prevent fake news advertising.

Facebook put out a statement saying:

Advertisers in India who want to run political ads on Facebook will need to confirm their identity and location to prevent abuse of the system ahead of the 2019 general elections..
