Find out who's manipulating you through Facebook political ads with ProPublica's free tool

Nobody, because I nuked all that stuff with Chrome extensions.



Can’t they deduce some of your personal information by which ads that you’re getting?

Social Fixer for Facebook worked well for Firefox, last I checked. Another sanity measure is to unfollow everyone and everything. One is left with an empty feed (along with not much reason to hang around FB anymore).

They still decide who your neighbors elect.

All I can control is myself and I how respond to any given situation.


A good tool, I suppose, but the people most likely to use it either already deleted their personal FB accounts or never had them in the first place.

Pro Tip: #deketefacefuckingbook


F.B. Purity removes some massive suckage from FaceBook. I’m a big fan of the NewsFeed word blacklist.

Roger that!


It makes your browser really SLOW! they need to get the bloat out.

I’m on FB, but I don’t see many political posts and those that I do I just ignore. Even if I agree with them and they are shared by my friends I never comment on them or like them or anything. I do block 'em sometimes, just like I block games and postcards and assorted bs. To my point, a little self control and FB can be a useful site for keeping up with your family, friends and neighborhood.


Yeah, I use it for keeping in contact with family. At a guess I thought that I don’t see much political stuff on it. According to this, none.

I do have a friend in the US who posts conspiracy shit but I never read it, and another in France who posts fundamentalist Christian shit, but I never read that either. The only other political things that ever show up are left anarchist demos and the like. I never respond to them on Arsebook either.
