FLIP-FLOPPERS: Facebook And Instagram To Ban Disinformation And False Ads after saying they wouldm't
Facebook is changing user policies for its social media platforms to explicitly ban disinformation about and ads trying to discourage participation in the 2020 census, the company announced on its website Thursday.

The company says it plans to enforce these specific bans on all users, including politicians — a departure from previous comments from Facebook officials who said the company did not want to restrict politicians' speech on its platforms.

According to Facebook's updated advertising policy, ads that describe participating in the U.S. census as "useless" or "meaningless" are no longer allowed on Instagram or Facebook, which is one of NPR's financial sponsors.

In January, the company plans to start removing any posts that misrepresent how and when the count is conducted, as well as who can participate. Facebook's updated "Community Standards" policy also bans any misleading content misstating that participating in the census could lead to a person's arrest, deportation or imprisonment or that the Census Bureau will share an individual's census information with another government agency.

The company's announcement comes less than three months before the constitutionally mandated head count of every person living in the U.S. is underway across the country in mid-March, after officially launching in remote Alaska in January.
