Facebook ad archive outs top spending political advertisers in the US

The database called "Ad Archive Report" will be updated weekly with details on who spent how much for political ads.

In an effort to grow transparency, Facebook launched the report that shows the amount of money that was put towards Facebook advertisements from May 2018 to October 20th of this year.

Governor Bruce Rauner's campaign spent more than $150,000 on Facebook advertisements.

Going forward Facebook will continue to maintain an archive documenting digital media spending, enabling researchers to easily track spikes in advertising around major elections, although it stops short of providing zip codes and a breakdown of targeting data. Facebook said RFA created pages using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names and posted massive amounts of clickbait meant to direct people to third-party websites.

Donald J. Trump, who repeatedly has accused the social media giant of liberal bias, spent almost $5 million on more than 100,000 ads purchased through his Make America Great Again Committee and his Trump for President organization. Since May, more than 100,000 ads have been run on Trump's page, according to the company. The company has brought in new rules for political ad-buyers in light of the 2016 election campaign, when Russian operatives targeted Americans with political ads.

But some big spenders on ads "related to issues of national importance" appear to be vendors chiefly interested in making money. There's also American AF, a T-shirt seller now running ads for its "Donald Pump" shirt, depicting the president lifting weights.
