Russian ‘Troll Farm’ Paid Facebook $100,000 To Run ‘Politically Divisive’ Ads

The depths of the insidious and ongoing Russian attacks on American psyches have been vastly underestimated. According to Facebook, 470 ‘inauthentic’ accounts ‘likely operated out of Russia’ by a ‘troll farm,’ bought roughly 3,000 ads for $100,000 – mostly in 2015, which spread MIND ALTERING PROPAGANDA, infecting the malleable minds of American voters.

“Our analysis suggests these accounts and Pages were affiliated with one another and likely operated out of Russia,” According to Facebook Chief Security Officer, Alex Stamos.

  • The vast majority of ads run by these accounts didn’t specifically reference the US presidential election, voting or a particular candidate.
  • Rather, the ads and accounts appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum — touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights.
  • About one-quarter of these ads were geographically targeted, and of those, more ran in 2015 than 2016.
  • The behavior displayed by these accounts to amplify divisive messages was consistent with the techniques mentioned in the white paper we released in April about information operations.

Troll Farm!

Facebook reps told congressional investigators on Wednesday that the $100,000 in ad sales was traced to a Russian ‘troll farm’ with a history of pushing pro-Kremlin propaganda, according to the Washington Post.

“I get the fact that the Russian intel services could figure out how to manipulate and use the bots. Whether they could know how to target states and levels of voters that the Democrats weren’t even aware really raises some questions. I think that’s a worthwhile area of inquiry,” Sen. Mark Warner (Va.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said during a May airing of the podcast Pod Save America. “How did they know to go to that level of detail in those kinds of jurisdictions?”

Sending Americans Into A FRENZY!

So – while the majority of the ads in question did not support any particular candidate, or even reference the election, and Facebook hasn’t released any examples of the RUSSIAN MIND CONTROL techniques used on unsuspecting Americans, one thing is clear according to Facebook:

A Russian ‘troll farm’ paid $100,000 to get people WORKED UP OVER VARIOUS ISSUES…

Perhaps learning the Clinton Foundation was a massive pay-for-play scheme taking millions of dollars from enemies of the United States got people worked up as well.

    They paid for ads in the margin that everyone ignores? The same margin where the company just admitted overstating clicks?

    While I definitely appreciate your blog you must be square compound head to not aknowledge Russia s been a lot-behind social politic manipulation ; I have few dubts at this point Trump co as a whole is not gonna be indicted ( and pardoned? ) but the whole Russia burger ( manafort kushner sater and a tenth of high profile “dealers” a list thats pretty rich with names and will carry facts when things get to final chapter and public ) will come out with some -concrete- evidence at a point , criminal indictments will range from collusion and spending foreign money into directly influencing outcome of national elections to higly dirt illegal/political financial activities

    Pretty much all the associated into Trump campaign have had extensive deals with Russia and in particular this notably intensified in last year of campaign

    These people were all in the first level dossier and drawer , primary importance in the Putin office schedules for 2016 , and years before ( not just Flynn only )

    Not saying financial political crimes did not and would not happen w Clinton campaign

    this just felt more or a political rush -widely- supported by Putin strategy , a coup , and that’s more illegal then what Clinton support -more shadowly ? rofl email – did

    btw Putin is using NK ( their late years nuclear and ballistic advancement are all “propelled” . f&furiously too…, by Ukraine ndr Russia )

    the global shit , the one Vs USA , has never been so much Vs Usa and unaware , as now .

    Hopefully someone is taking care of all this shit . it’s hope but the sense is USA is being left bit behind at this time .

    It’s real then when Mueller job will be complete the deep and direct thing presented into the ass of Trump co ( who knows and plan yet they exet strategy at the moment .. . ) will be concret and too evident to hide from pubblic .

    1 thing is sure I wouldn want to be any of them at this point , and likely Kushner face the worst outcome of the whole co for his life, he should have learnd something from his faher story

    unfortunately this means that next presidente will be dem
