    Facebook considering limits on targeted campaign ads

    MENLO PARK, California — Facebook is considering restricting politicians' ability to use highly detailed demographic and personal information to narrowly target would-be voters with ads, policy chief Nick Clegg confirmed Thursday in an interview with POLITICO — in a sign of potential softening of the social network's broadly permissive policy on political advertising.

    The possible reining in of political "microtargeting," part of a broader reassessment of Facebook's policies around campaign messaging, comes just weeks after CEO Mark Zuckerberg made two trips to Washington to defend the company against attacks from Democrats who say its hands-off approach distorts democracy. Google is also considering changes to its political ad policy, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, while Twitter last week angered Republicans by announcing it's ending political advertising on its platform altogether.
