Share Who Targets Me with your friends and family
Thanks to pressure from Who Targets Me and organizations like us, the platforms now provide some transparency data about political advertising.
However, they don’t provide any data about the targeting methods used, or the ways in which people are exposed to and influenced by political ads.
Alongside own research, we work with experienced university researchers in computational political science and journalists reporting for major, trusted news sources.
