Shoutout to @Info_Activism@twitter.com’s speaker lineups at Glass Room SF. Happily noticing for the 2nd talk that pale face-worn mics don’t match speaker skin tones. That’s a GOOD direction to skew your speakers towards. No shade, honest joy that it is a hardware problem. Thank you!

Facebook is everywhere, extracting data. They only provide political ads data back to the gray countries on this map. What does it mean to withhold extracted data from all the red countries? —@Beltrandroid@twitter.com of http://ad.watch on #datacolonialsm
@Beltrandroid@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com "In this case all the ads that have to do with impeachment. We started to find a lot of situations when political actors of one country were targeting many countries outside."

@Beltrandroid@twitter.com @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org A number of companies:facebook &indian companies produced a "voluntary code of ethics".We looked at many platforms but focused on facebook.We focused on at the window of 48 hours before elections when they were not supposed to be ads. We found 2235 FB ads Beltrandroid & @email@example.com
W/facebook you can target by demographics(someone who lost their job), interest (someone who is a friend of someone celebrating Ramadan),behaviors(someone who is an engaged shopper). You can create an audience by including people but ALSO by excluding them from the ad- @firstname.lastname@example.org

@Beltrandroid@twitter.com @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org "What isnt political?" ask @Beltrandroid@twitter.com & @email@example.com about the line Facebook draws between political and nonpolitical ads. However ads that are political are expected to be more transparent.
