Report released detailing Facebook ad spending

U.S. Rep Beto O'Rourke is trailing Sen. Ted Cruz in the latest poll

With fake news that spread through the social network thought to have influenced the 2016 election, and ill-gotten Facebook user data from Cambridge Analytica applied to Donald Trump's campaign ad targeting, Facebook is hoping to avoid similar problematic narratives this time around. Meanwhile, less than two weeks from the election, billionaire and newly re-registered Democrat Michael Bloomberg has given an additional $10 million to his super PAC, Independence USA, to support Democrats in the midterms, CBS reports. Today, Facebook launches Candidate Info, featuring thousands of direct-to-camera vertical videos where federal, state and local candidates introduce themselves and explain their top policy priority, qualifications and biggest goal if they win office. The campaign has spent more than $5 million on 6,024 Facebook ads since May, with more than 1,000 of those ads run in the last week.

An Ad Archive Report launched online gave data including quantities of advertisements and how much money was spent.

He said: "No matter the result tomorrow we'll go into the game at the weekend with confidence and looking to reach another final".

The social media company is committed to increasing its transparency about political activity.

Spices retailer Penzeys has put Dollars 773,000 into ads to encourage people to vote, following the controversial confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. And it's letting people with and without Facebook accounts see it. "Help them put together the ingredients they need for a healthy and satisfying voting experience". California-based Concealed Online, which sells firearms training for concealed carry permits, has spent $1.76 million encouraging people in Texas, Florida and other states to apply before a possible shift in power brings gun restrictions.

Ozil Inspires Gunners As Aubameyang Hits Brace
