10 Million In US Saw FB Ads Bought By Russians

Apparently, before and after the presidential election in US, an estimated 10 million people in US saw Facebook adverts bought in Russia.

The numbers were published in a blog post by a company as it turned over 3,000 Russian-bought ads to federal investigators on Monday.

The focus points were “divisive social and political messages” on issues like immigration and gun rights.

Russia refused that they tried to influence the election.

Facebook’s vice-president of policy and communications, Elliot Schrage said, “The company is “continuing to refine our techniques for identifying the kinds of ads in question”.

Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s vice president of global public policy announced In an earlier post on the company’s blog this week that it would also be adding 1,000 people to its global ads review team.

Since those ads came from inauthentic accounts, those violated Facebook’s policies. Facebook said that many did not violate its content policies.

The tech giant used modelling to estimate the number of users who had seen the Russian-bought ads, which it said appear to have come from a Russian entity called the Internet Research Agency.

It said that 44% of the ads surfaced before the US election.
