After the US elections on November 3, Google will ban election advertising on its website, a spokesperson said on Friday.
Social media firms are under increasing pressure to avoid holding advertisements that spread fake information and can guide the outcome of elections.
Facebook has announced that in the week before the vote, it will end allowing new campaign advertising and refuse all advertising claiming victories until the results are declared.
Twitter last year band campaign advertising, whereas the way electoral marketers could micro-target voters was previously constrained by Google.
New policies of Google aim to target advertisements that specifically apply to elections and any other advertising which contributes to federal or national elections or which operate on the basis of search queries for elections.
