ProPublica reported this week that Facebook advertisers were able to target ads to Jew-haters and other users who belonged to anti-Semitic groups. This follows a recent announcement by the company that Russian propagandists had bought thousands of ads on the platform during the presidential election. Julia Angwin, who co-reported the story for ProPublica said that the Facebook has a category called Jew haters and it is earning dollars by allowing advertisers to post on the website. The Facebook earns 1 to 2 per cent of global revenues in micro-segment.
