Ferguson and Baltimore had gained widespread attention for the large and violent protests over police shootings of black men. The decision to target the ad in those two cities offers the first look at how accounts linked to the Russian government-affiliated troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency used geographically targeted advertising to sow political chaos in the United States, the sources said.

Facebook has previously said that roughly one-quarter of the 3,000 ads bought by the agency were geographically targeted, but it has not revealed any specific locations. Facebook has also not revealed which demographic groups and interest groups were targeted by the ads.

The Black Lives Matter ad appeared on Facebook at some point in late 2015 or early 2016, the sources said. The sources said it appears the ad was meant to appear both as supporting Black Lives Matter but also could be seen as portraying the group as threatening to some residents of Baltimore and Ferguson.

wow... let me guess.. BLACK? People over at Facebook are either absolute idiots, pants on fire liars or both...

there are ONLY two groups in this country whos majority have an issue with the law statistically proven time and again and are easily manipulated into
emotionally based stupidity... Blacks and Hispanics (especially the illegals)

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

This is the same thing facebook is doing by releasing partial information. If there is bad stuff from the Russians, release it all. But no, facebook is trying to drag this out and let people think there is a connection between Trump and Russia.

Facebook is totally guilty of sowing political chaos.

^^^ no doubt. I know a few people that get kicked off FB on a regular basis for 30 days. The most common infraction??? Saying something non-PC about muslims or a liberal female. Yet I see things all the time that supposedly are against their code of conduct (nudity, violence, black on white racism). To say they're very selective in their enforcement of the rules is saying it lightly.

So the democrats can't make up their mind?

Russians were helping trump ?

Now Russians were helping the democrats ?

I guess the internet is now a type of propaganda machine for gullible stupid people..

Anyone can be anonymous on the net pushing people's buttons of persuasion..
