The TRI collects "dark" Facebook posts and is building an openly accessible database of targeted political ads. We discuss some of the major issues surrounding the referendum, the difficulties in discerning when a Facebook ad is "political," and targeted political advertising on other platforms like Google and Youtube.

Super interesting take on social media!
Most podcasts about social media are about marketing or brand management. This one is different - it looks at how social media is being used to affect politics across the world. Still, digital marketers could get something out of this podcast! Warmly recommend :)
