Facebook has left Google behind by running maximum number of political advertisements ahead of the 2019 general elections. Facebook ran over 51,000 political advertisements over the course of two months, starting February 2019. This has left Google far behind which ran 830 political ads between February 19 and April 5. According to an ad transparency report released by Google on April 4, Google spent around ₹3.76 crore during those 45 days in India for political advertisements. Facebook is also ahead of microblogging site Twitter in running political advertisements according to the ad transparency report released by Twitter in March. The report also revealed that no politician or political party has used Twitter to advertise. Considering Facebook 300 million users in India as opposed to the 35 million Twitter users in the country, it has become a prime site for political advertising. However, this also makes it apparently susceptible to the spread of misinformation. Political parties like BJP have spent around ₹1.5 crore and ₹1.2 crore on platforms like Facebook and Google, respectively, for political ads, outdoing all other political parties. Congress has allocated around ₹5.6 lakh on Facebook and ₹50,000 on Google for ads.
