What is the key point of a political ad? To get your message across so that person will either vote for you or not vote for another person.
Back In 2016 Hillary ran about 250k Facebook ads while trump ran around 5.9 million. On the one hand it shows how trumps team understood the power of Facebook and social media. While Hillary did not. It’s as if the dems went backwards after obama.
Now currently if its believed trumps camp had about 5000 data points on every person they where looking at. They could with cambridge pin point a voter down to the district and cater ads to that person’s feed.
Little side trip. Your phones really arent listening to you. It’s your data that’s catered to you.
So to the main point here. The idea ads dont sway people is absurd as a notion.
There is a reason why you use tide soap over gain. There is a reason why you drink coke over Pepsi ( besides coke being the better drink period).
There is a reason why target got into a but of hot water because they could tell when a woman was ready to get pregnant by her shopping habits.
I understand. Pride gets in the way. People think they are clever enough not to be swayed by things. Meanwhile they say that inside their own little catered social media bubbles.
But hey if this thread is too deep for you there is always the trump thread about him insulting a supporter…
