Political ads study finds the right favors Google, the left Facebook and Twitter

… Computer scientists at the New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering analyzed more than 884,000 recent political ads on the three social media sites. They found that Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again political action committee had the largest number of ads of any candidate while a Republican group called the Senate Leadership Fund spent the most on ads. ...The report released Monday is part of NYU’s ongoing ads transparency project and offered a look at social media strategies and priorities of different political groups. … “Depending on who you are, the ads you’re going to see are going to be wildly different,” Damon McCoy, assistant professor and co-author, said in an interview.
