Political Ads on Social Networks: Tearing the curtains of opacity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

At the beginning of the session, each member of the organizations will present (in 10 minutes) the advances in their research on political advertising in social networks according to points of contact to facilitate the subsequent exchange: 1) Analysis methodology implemented. 2) Obstacles in the investigation of electoral advertising in social networks. 3) Cooperation with the public and private sector: if it happened and how it happened. In the following part of the session, the moderator will summarize the state of affairs and invite the attendees to share questions and proposals to continue moving forward in the research and transparency of political advertising on social networks. We would also like to have the participation of the platforms where these practices take place. We´ll try to manage those invitations successfully before the session, but we still can not confirm them. We expect participants to adopt a proactive mindset towards sharing their own experiences and points of view in this field.
