As I wrote in Wired: "This may be par for the course with Facebook, but it's not something we as a society can afford to tolerate any longer."

But what about FB's claim that Ad Observatory is redundant because FB already offers researchers access to a database of the ads running on its service? Also demonstrably false. FB's database misses multiple instances of paid disinformation.

It's a mark of just how terrible FB's privacy practices are that multiple journalists found this claim credible enough to repeat (Ad Observer COULD get your friends "interactions" to ads, but it provably does not).

FB claimed Ad Observer users could expose information about which of their FB friends have seen the same ad. It would be terrible - even by FB standards - if this was possible. It implies that when FB shows you an ad, it also embeds info about who else has been shown that ad.

Both of these are demonstrably false claims. When you scrape an ad FB showed you and send it to Ad Observatory, you don't violate your privacy (because you have chosen to make this disclosure), nor anyone else's privacy.

FB is waging a two-front war on the scrappy academics who run this project: first, there are the legal threats (which depend on very shaky legal ground), and then there's a disinformation campaign that smears these academics and their work.

Today, @wired@twitter.com ran my op-ed about @facebook@twitter.com's war on , an @nyuniversity@twitter.com project that enlists users to gather the ads FB serves so researchers and accountability journalists can measure how FB is living up to its promises on paid disinfo.
