Facebook is deleting the personal accounts of all members of the New York University advertising observation team

Facebook has disabled the private accounts of researchers who are members of the NYU advertising monitoring team and stated that in their investigation, they all violated the terms and guidelines strictly abided by the platform and must bear the consequences.

What did the research team do and what made Facebook take such a big step? The ad review team is working on a project to help them discover the origin and spread of political ads on Facebook. Politics is a very sensitive topic, considering how people have different views on politics and how to use certain posts as triggers, or how to use politics to brainwash so many people.

However, in addition to this, the main work of the team is to determine the basis for political advertising and its targeting of users. To do this, they need user data. Although Facebook politicians do not allow them to access this data directly, the research team created an Ad Observer to help them complete their tasks.

What political advertisements are distributed on the platform and how they are delivered to relevant audiences. The data you later collected has also been publicly changed for other third parties who use the data for their own purposes.

The company took immediate action and deleted the personal accounts of all investigators. When asked what the banned researchers think about this, they replied that from their perspective, Facebook’s decision was wrong.

They believe that they are only exposing issues on Facebook that should attract public attention, and Facebook will interfere with their work and silence them. They said that Facebook itself does not see political ads on its platform, so misinformation can easily spread.

Although the tech giant shared some of its data and how it took action on the platform, it didn’t share all of them. Data and political advertising and Something in between. There is no user’s personal data, such as usernames, IDs, or friend lists, and no information about their use is stored; however, Facebook will not tolerate violations of its policies. Is Facebook right, or what did the NYU team do right?
