Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has begun promoting his posts on Facebook, with nine separate posts targeted to Facebook users in 46 different ads.

According to the Facebook Ad Library, Orbán has spent 167,349 Forints (US$534) on Facebook advertising since Oct. 23.

While this is apparently the first time the premier has purchased advertising on the social media network, it is a small amount compared to the millions of Forints that other Hungarian politicians have spent on such advertising. [Telex]
