In a recent announcement, tech giant Google, which had earlier paused political-based advertisements, has stated that it will resume political ads in the US. Alphabet Inc's The Company stated that it would resume accepting political advertisements in the United States from February 24th. In January, Google stopped telecasting political-based advertisements following the violence at Capitol during the presidential inauguration, as per the presidential orders.

The firm stated that it would continue to rigorously enforce the ads policies, prohibiting false information that could significantly deteriorate or undermine trust in elections or the democratic processes. Google also added that it would soon develop new advertisement policies in every sector, which will stop publishing misleading information. The new ad policies will soon be available to all the publishers by the end of this year.

Along with Google, many other social media apps such as Yahoo, Facebook, and Twitter had also paused political ads after the US presidential elections. Only briefly unfreezing ads around the US were telecasted. Now all these firms are also resuming publishing political-based ads. But the exact date of ads being telecasted is not known.
