Campaigns use big data and microtargeting to decide who should see their messages.

The software scans your Facebook newsfeed for ‚Sponsored’ posts (ignoring everything else).

The Sponsored posts are matched against categorised lists of political advertisers.

The software then displays a breakdown of the political ads you’re being targeted with and a comparison with how other groups are being targeted.
