Facebook demands that New York University stop monitoring FB political ads

Facebook said an effort by NYU to track who is shown what political ads violates Facebook’s rules against bulk data collection and sent a letter on Oct. 16 demanding that they stop, according to a report Friday by The Wall Street Journal. The objection by Facebook pertains to an NYU’s Ad Observatory, which uses thousands of volunteers who surf Facebook with a special browser extension.

"Monitoring us violates our policies". Um... how about 'we don't work for you, dude'?

Yeah, we don't want the truth to be known. Isn't that right, Zuckerberg? A good old DOJ lawsuit would do FB a lot of good.

How about FB just stop all political ads? Then we won't have to study their accuracy and look for bias.

Why wouldn't FB want more transparency to prove that it's just a platform? The obvious reason is that it isn't merely a platform.

These are volunteers who willingly surf FB then report back. FB clients are not being spied on, that in fact is what FB has been doing for years, how ironic.

I think it's funny that someone who looks so much like a real-life Data (we've all seen the meme) is worried about people collecting data. Especially when his business model is collecting, and selling, data.

Facebook, monitoring over 1 billion people, has a problem when they are monitored by others.
