Jennifer Grygiel, assistant professor of communications in the Newhouse school was mentioned in The New York Times for the discovery of Facebook ads targeting American citizens.
Grygiel was able to view them because of a recent policy change by Facebook. In May, the social network began displaying more information about ads on its platform, including about where the ads were targeted and the buyers.
Grygiel said, “State-funded media is inherently political — it should all be documented in Facebook’s political ad database.” “I hope that Congress will review this, and I hope Facebook will change their policies and product,” she continued.
