Facebook Creating Borders on the Internet

Facebook has some new directives that severely affect political pages in English language by citizens that are not located in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand (actually, it even affects those pages located there): we are no longer allowed to promote our pages outside our own country due to new "election meddling by foreign countries" measures. We now have borders in the digital world: if I live in Portugal and I have a political commentary page, I can only promote it to people living in Portugal. I guess we can thank all those Russiagate progressives for this.

Not sure if it is a bug or I am being punished, but since trying to submit that commercial yesterday evening promoting my official page, Facebook no longer lets me like or comment on any pages whatsoever. That's what happens when you're a dangerous Socialist foreign agent trying to mingle with the elections in the USA in favour of... well, none of the candidates, since I detect no difference in the politics of Biden and Trump, just rhetorical ambiguities.
