The guy with pink hair has seriously filled in the details beyond reasonable doublet. Seems pretty damaging to democracy to me.

Don't know if this story is breaking story across the pond?
This goes into a lot more detail concerning 84million facebook records being used to subvert the American election & Brexit.
Some interesting stuff about LukOil and the Russian allegations of interfering in western democracy.

Listen to in the background if you're got 4 hours or two spare.

The pink haired faggot said CA is a “psychological warfare weapon” to “exploit mental vulnerabilities that our algorithms showed that Facebook users had.” So, in other words, he worked in the advertising business. Scraping and crawling big data to microtarget consumers has been around for 20 years. Only morons input their Facebook login into 3rd party websites that "personality quizzes".

Yeah completely agree, the only issue was that it wasn't just the moron who agreed to the app in this case.
The ambiguous permissions that were 'agreed' to allow the app to scrape the same data out of every friend of that friend. It's working like a super efficient virus - but instead of a virus, it's profiling 80M> people and choosing the most persuadable to effectively carpet bomb into a certain thought process.

It's common knowledge that if you click on a few items of Amazon / visit some sites the cookies are harvested and you get related links appearing on other websites.
I feel there's a fundamental difference between current advertising tactics and what seems to have happened in this case.
