Facebook Confirms to RT Used ‘Treason’ tag, But Rarely – Broadcaster Editor-in-Chief


Moscow -   Facebook has confirmed to RT it had used “treason” interest tag as part of its ad targeting algorithm, but rarely, the broadcaster’s Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said on Tuesday.
Recently, media reported that Facebook labeled 65,000 Russian users as interested in treason via a specific category, but later removed the tag.
“Facebook has admitted that advertisers used ‘treason’ interest tag.
“That is, a person chose treason as one of their interests on Facebook, and their data was then sent to advertisers for targeting,’’ Simonyan said on one of her social media platforms.
The RT editor-in-chief added that Facebook admitted only to using the category rarely.
“They did not give any details, like who, why and when,’’ Simonyan wrote.
The RT editor-in-chief added that the broadcaster had asked several human rights organisations to comment on the situation, however, there had been no results.
