Facebook Inc. confirmed on Wednesday it would end its ban on political advertisement on its platforms it imposed in the United States before the 2020 elections to "avoid confusion or abuse following Election Day."

"We've heard a lot of feedback about this and learned more about political and electoral ads during this election cycle. As a result, we plan to use the coming months to take a closer look at how these ads work on our service to see where further changes may be merited," the company stated.

Facebook recently announced it would "expand efforts" to remove false claims on its platforms about the coronavirus and vaccines against COVID-19.
