Three months after Mark Zuckerberg pledged to stop external forces from disproportionately affecting U.S. elections, targeted ads are bombarding voters in a pivotal Senate race.
Those ads are trying to influence the super-close contest in Alabama between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones. Yet as the voting period draws to a close tomorrow, the Daily Beast reports, "none" of Zuckerberg's promises regarding online election ad transparency have taken effect.
Remember: fake, misleading, and hard-to-trace Facebook ads were seen by 10 million people during the last presidential election. Since then, the social media giant's promises to bring more transparency to its online election advertising have yet to materialize anywhere in America.
