Facebook Moves to Block Ad Transparency Tools — Including Ours — ProPublica


A number of organizations, including ProPublica, have developed tools to let the public see exactly how Facebook users are being targeted by advertisers.

Now, Facebook has quietly made changes to its site that stop those efforts.

\#ProPublica, #Mozilla and #WhoTargetsMe have all noticed their tools stopped working this month after Facebook inserted code in its website that blocks them.

Facebook restricts campaigners’ ability to check ads for political transparency


Facebook has restricted the ability of external political transparency campaigners to monitor adverts placed on the social network, in a move described as an “appalling look” by one of the organisations affected.

WhoTargetsMe, a British group dedicated to scrutinising adverts on the social network, has said its activities have been severely restricted by recent changes made by the social network. The change has also hit a similar programme by the US investigative journalism site ProPublica, affecting both groups’ ability to collect data on why users are being targeted by political campaigners.


 
How to #block #online #ads with the #hosts #file
Am I the only one who is skeptical clicking on ads I see online? Yes, I know it is the lifeblood of entrepreneurs, but I really don't care to view more than I have to. We all know the 7 +- 2 rule; we have a limit of the amount of information we can take in at a single time. It's a fact. We are not infinite in our abilities alone - let's just let the computers do the thinking for us.

Advertising and venture capital is corrupting the internet to the point where it's become mainly an elaborate shell game with no real purpose.

Click stats, AI features and even some brick-and-mortar shops are being faked in order to con advertisers and investors into paying huge sums of money:
