muh Russia: Half of Russian Facebook Ads Ran After Election, 25% Never Ran at All

More than half of the ‘Russian advertisements’ on Facebook that supposedly influenced the 2016 US elections actually appeared after the vote, the company has revealed. Nobody even saw one-quarter of the ads bought by “inauthentic accounts.”
In September, Facebook vowed to deliver Congress some 3,000 ads purchased between 2015 and 2017 and connected to 470 “inauthentic” accounts and pages, which, as it continues to say, “appear to have come from a Russian entity.”However, Moscow has blasted those allegations, while repeatedly stating that it had nothing to do with the 2016 vote.

“44% of total ad impressions [number of times ads were displayed] were before the US election on November 8, 2016; 56% were after the election,” the social media giant stated on Monday as it published some “facts” about “Russian ads.”

However, over “25% of the ads were never shown to anyone,” the Monday ‘factsheet’ says, adding the posts have reached some 10 million users.

Is it not problematic that it occurred though?

Exactly, 25% of the suspect ads were never viewed. If they were never viewed did actually occur? And if they were never viewed can they really be called advertisements at all? We can be sure this 25% had zero effect though.

And is the post election 56% of the remaining, actual viewed ads, or of the total ads including the 25% that never advertised anything since they were never seen? That makes a difference in the supposed, alleged, "influence".

Dem math, 56% post election stuff effected the election they were post of.

Goodness. I'm pretty sure if I threw a Russia thread into a den of starving lions, you'd gayly chase after it.

Is this like another form of, "Yeah, but it starts a conversation!"?

Heh heh. Might have to chase after you, Vacherie.

1. How old are you?
2. How well do you clean up with a good waxing, some rouge, and a wig?

This is spin by facebook.

1) It is not uncommon for facebook ads to never be used, especially if the bids set are relatively low. Facebook uses an auction formula, and many failed.

2) Ad prices likely dropped after the election, and thus facebook filled those spots.

3) this is of the ads we know about, i.e the one paid for by rubbles or russian IPs. There are likely others.

source: run facebook ads for job.
