Our 2022 Ads Safety Report

When it comes to designing products and creating policies, one of our top priorities is to ensure the safety of kids and teens around the world. That’s why we’ve long blocked ads targeting and personalization for young kids. We’ve also filtered mature ad categories such as sexually explicit content and ads for gambling, alcohol and pharmaceutical drugs. And, in 2021, we announced that we would expand these protections to all users under the age of 18 globally. This includes blocking ad targeting based on age, gender or interests and preventing additional age-sensitive ad categories from serving to teens. We began rolling out these changes in Europe and completed that process globally last year. We also now prohibit ads promoting dating apps, contests and sweepstakes, as well as weight loss products to people under 18.
