Social media monitoring final report – 2021 local elections

ISFED monitored the activity of political parties and candidates on social media during the 2021 local elections, looking at Facebook's library of political advertisements. According to the Facebook standard, all political and election advertisements are subject to declaration. However, false declarations and changed information manipulation tactics are still used. In parallel with the official campaign of Election Subjects on Facebook and other less popular platforms, discrediting messages were still actively spread via mostly anonymous actors.
