Emma Graham-Harrison, in The Guardian, reports:

Facebook is to publish comprehensive data on political advertising during Ireland’s abortion referendum campaign, giving an unprecedented insight into targeting of voters on social media, and setting a powerful precedent for election transparency.

The US company has told Irish politicians it will provide anonymised details of the amount spent on targeting Irish voters on its platform between 1 March and 25 May, and the number of referendum-linked ads that had been purchased.

It will also provide details of proposed advertisements, and proposed spending, that it had rejected after bringing in a ban on foreign organisations paying for online campaigns inside Ireland.

… The Irish vote threw concerns about “dark ads” – targeted at individual voters or small groups, and not visible to the rest of the electorate – into sharp focus after it emerged that foreign organisations had been taking advantage of a loophole in Irish law to target voters online.

Name all the ‘icons’?


Ah here.

It’s very unusual for an advertiser to use their competitors name in an ad…in Ireland anyway. So, I thought you might like these which I think went up yesterday in Dublin. Do they tie in with the Shetland pony vid thingy?

Currently on UK Telly.

A Co Clare cliff-based spot for Three mobile.

Fair play though, in fairness.

Thanks Wayne Murphy

Update: It may be the Shetland Islands. Which would make a lot more sense.
