Its policy change comes days after presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg exploited a loophole to run humorous messages promoting his campaign on the accounts of popular Instagram personalities followed by millions of younger people.
"Be honest, passionate and be yourself!" the paid listing urges.
For example, a post that said "I will vote for candidate X because they can fly" would be fact-checked.
Bloomberg went on to praise President Trump's 2016 campaign, noting that he didn't have to spend a lot of money during the race.
Bloomberg's big push into social media with the same company that promoted the Fyre Festival is questionable.
However, if any of these posts by creators and influencers are boosted, they are then are considered to be political ads and subject to all of Facebook's requirements, and they will be included in its Ad Library, which stores political and issue-related ads and information about those ads for seven years.
Haberman, who previously covered mayoral politics for The New York Post and The New York Daily News, referred to the moment when Bloomberg reportedly listed himself as 5 foot, 10 inches on his driver's license.
Trump's campaign did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.
The Bloomberg campaign declined to say how much it paid for the sponsored posts, or if it had more in the works.
Trump is now making an attempt to fire up the Democratic race by driving up Bloomberg's negatives, significantly if he qualifies for the following major debate in Las Vegas on February 19.
Bloomberg has thrown large amounts of money from his personal fortune into the campaign - spending more than $300 million across the country and about $29 million in Texas alone, according to the Kantar/Campaign Media Analysis Group.
"Hello Mr. Sideup. Can you make a viral meme to let the younger demographic know I'm the cool candidate?" the campaign "writes" in a post to the account Sonny5ideup.
But while Bloomberg's attempt to flood the country with television and radio adsappears to be paying off in the polls, the campaign's social media strategy could backfire.
Mr. Loeser, the Bloomberg spokesman, mentioned in his assertion on Thursday, after the redlining feedback emerged: "As a result of he is aware of how essential it's to maintain individuals in their houses, Mike attacked predatory lending as mayor and helped different cities craft modern methods to cut back evictions as a philanthropist". "They asked me to do it, I said".
After audiotape was leaked earlier this week of Bloomberg praising "stop and frisk" policing tactics while mayor of NY - a discriminatory policy he now disavows - Trump called him a "TOTAL RACIST" in a Twitter post that was later taken down. "From the subjugation of minorities through stop and frisk policies to his hardline anti-marijuana stance, dude is a total hoe".
