Oh indeed.

Ever see those "sponsored" or "suggested" posts that you scroll by? Those are paid advertisements.

Ever made and run an ad on Facebook?

I have.

It's creepy. You can get insanely specific on your target audience, all based on the information Facebook has gleaned by people willfully giving it to them.

I can specifically target an audience who:

-female
-Ages 24-40
-college degree, masters degree or higher
-owns home
-first time home buyer
-home over 2,000 square feet
-commuter
-recently divorced
-recently married
-away from home (traveling)
-average income $70,000 to $120,000
-generation X
-Millenial
-Specific country, state OR city (or combinations)
-has kids in high school
-soccer mom
-leans republican
-likely republican voter
-plays games that have in-app purchases
-works in nursing
-high credit utilization

And we haven't even gotten to "interests" yet -- which that list could be 10 times longer than the one above. What movies, tv shows, music, books, radio, social causes/movements, celebrities, personalities and news organizations. You can dial in the adverts with extreme precision. You can even target ads to just go to certain people that work for certain companies in certain cities and states.

All because that information is being willingly given out by people on Facebook, and the sites Facebook partners with who share/sell advertising demographic data.

I'm not kidding. 100% not kidding. Some here might have run ads on Facebook and know what I'm talking about.

Just remember, they only can use what you give them...

Great thread Mystik.

This is indeed a very powerful message and is disturbing to say the least.

I always wondered what would happen if campaigns - not just political campaigns, but any sort of attempt to rally support behind anything - dependent upon social media met with such a social media platform simply deciding to... pull the plug. That's one of the problems with being reliant on someone else's platform for espousing your message or conducting logistics and organizing. If said platform fails, decides to shut you down, gets commandeered, or what have you... you have zero control, and lose a huge chunk of your capacity to campaign.

This is one reason corporate influence over the internet worries me so much, and why I support true net neutrality. We are so reliant on the internet today as a communications medium, if it becomes overridden by corporate and/or political interests, huge swaths of people's voices can simply be silenced. At minimum, people need platform redundancy. Don't just be on Facebook. Have equal numbers and strength on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, wherever you can gain eyeballs and mindshare. Otherwise, all your eggs are in one - apparently very precarious - basket.

I say this as someone who doesn't (any longer) support any current candidate, Sanders included.

Peace.

I find it funny how you Americans get all flustered when it's time to choose a new face to carry on doing the same job as every singl president has done since independence.

Why not embrace the fact that from Clinton to Sanders and Trump to Cruz you will not get any change? It will probably save you a lot of stress and lower your choloesteral.

Take a good, hard look at Hillary supporters. Many are haters, they want to lash out at others so they can hopefully gain the reward it will get them. Hillary won't do anything for anyone but herself. Attacking one group she opposes won't help anyone she claims to support. It will help her to take down her opponents. Do you think you'll benefit from gun owners being harassed? You won't. How will you gain from her giving more power and more money to Wall Street and the banks? Bush and Obama did it and we got nothing. Maybe you're just a mercenary getting paid to try to get Hillary some positive social media, but that makes you a little toad in her eyes. She looks down on her supporters as fools and idiots, simpletons who can't think for themselves.

What I find most disturbing and what people don't seem to get:

PERCEPTION = REALITY

The Cliinton SuperPAC "Correct The Record" is spending insane amounts of money to "digitally sanitize, reorganize, and clean up" the digital online landscape.

These folks are altering the realities of tens of millions of people, by changing these people's perspectives.

These paid-for people are changing what people see online. These people are distorting the truth, shuttering dissenting opinions and over-inflating Clinton's popularity.

We are seeing brainwashing happen RIGHT NOW IN FRONT OF OUR FACES. They're not even hiding it! They aren't even ashamed to be doing it! They're openly admitting to it! They even name their campaign "Correct The Record" -- they are re-writing the narrative, the script we all read from and follow!

What we see, hear and read enters our brains and alters how we view things and how we feel. How we feel influences what we think about. What we think about changes how we act (what we do about doing daily).

If someone is altering what you are hearing, seeing and reading to something fake -- you are being brainwashed into accepting a false narrative and reality of someone else's choosing!

Do YOU want Clinton to decide what your reality around you looks and feels like?

Then DO something. SAY something. Point some fingers, post something on your Facebook, share articles with your friends. Don't just sit and take being manipulated lightly. Your perception of the world is one of the very few things you still own

And who are these people to take that from you? Why would you let one of the very few things you still can claim as your own be taken from you by people who don't know you, or truly even care about you?

All media already does this, just look at MSNBC and Fox. It's not just news either, commercial products are the biggest violators, the world isn't about people knowing the truth, it's about people liking their belief in something being true. The world isn't based around facts, it's based around ideas being accepted and most of this comes from attaching emotional connotations to ideas.

If any of you think Correct The Record will disband once the election is done.Y'all haven't been paying attention.These paid trolls will soon turn their attention to ATS and other sites like this if they haven't already.( I would be surprised if we haven't seen threads from them.)

a reply to: MystikMushroom I've stumbled upon several of these types of pages and they are full of anything but innocent comments. There are instead full of hateful liberal vitriol, idiotic off based memes and "republican" trolls spewing garbage back and forth.

There's at least one person here whom I'm fairly certain is on the Clinton team, paid or volunteer though, I don't know.

Well at least with FoxNews you know what you're getting.

MOST people still assume Facebook is a level playing field for all people. Most people assume that everyone's treated equally and equitable on Facebook, and that the company doesn't shield or protect any one "side".

I'd fully expect pro-Bernie comments to be removed from a FoxNews article, that's kind of a no-brainer.

We're talking about manipulating an entire media platform that serves the entire political spectrum at once.

Correct the record is correcting the bad info out there. Correcting it means the record is or was incorrect.
Isn't every commercial out there designed do to that? Bring attention to something? You're putting a nefarious bent to it by calling it brainwashing.
Mattel brainwashed my kids into wanting $60.00 tickle me elmos
Then Nike brainwashed them into wanting $150 00 sneakers
Clorox brainwashed me into thinking my home was a hotbed of germs if I didn't clean up with bleach and blue buffalo convinced me I didn't love my dog if I fed him chicken byproducts and gluten. That's Madison ave.

I'm sure that any campaigning online by Clinton's people is to educate and inform people.
Dont the other candidates have websites to inform voters? Don't these sites also solicited donations ?

I also don't think profit is a dirty word or that wealth can be filthy. Commercials brought customers to my store. Yay me.

Ps posts aren't supposed to be about me or other members.
