Why Facebook Showed You That Ad for the Candidate You Hate

Hell, who cares about election crap? I seriously wonder why Facebook shows me nothing but ads about stuff I hate...all...the...time. Facebook's algorithm probably reads what I say about them. wink

Microtargeted online advertisements can be a powerful tool for political campaigns to tailor a message to specific people they are trying to reach. But the reason you saw a particular campaign ad on Facebook may have nothing to do with your political views, or even your demographic profile. It could depend on whether you live in a swing state and on your internet activity آ— or be practically random.
