    The Mozilla Foundation and a group of rights groups and non-profits have penned an open letter to Facebook and Google urging them to halt political advertising until after the upcoming UK General Election due to concerns about disinformation, lack of transparency and the data that is being used to target these ads. What is your opinion on this? We'd love to have a discussion. Learn more:

    The letter argued that there won’t be time in the current parliament for the urgent legislation on political ads that the UK Electoral Commission, Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the cross-party DCMS Select Committee have called for.

    “This legislative blackspot is particularly concerning in light of Facebook’s recent policies to allow politicians to openly publish disinformation through ads. Equally concerning is the lack of transparency as to what data is being used to target ads, and how such ads are being targeted,” the letter continued.
