Obama’s Former Director Just Exposed What Facebook Told Them To Do – It’s ALL A Huge Cover Up!

It proves more than ever that Mark Zuckerberg needs to be held responsible for his actions

United States senators have had the unique opportunity this week to ask the questions that the majority of us all want to be answered, namely; what on earth is going on with Facebook.

Over the last few weeks, disturbing details have surfaced that show that CEO Mark Zuckerberg was involved in a tremendous breach of user’s security by allowing Cambridge Analytica to harvest millions of people’s information.

Now, it has come to the attention that this isn’t the first time that Facebook has gathered this sort of data thanks to the loose lips of Obama’s former media director Carol Davidsen, and that is not all she had to share.

Facebook, the social media giant, has become so much a part of our everyday lives that the majority of its users can’t go a day without using it.

The platform that was designed to help friends and family stay in touch used to be a fantastic tool, but now it has turned into something much more sinister.

Over the last few weeks, information has been brought to light that Facebook was involved with allowing data of its customers to be used without our permission.

Now, if that was not bad enough to hear this isn’t the first time that Zuckerberg has sold out his users for an extra few bucks in billionaire pockets.

According to Obama’s former media director, Carol Davidsen, Facebook gave them complete access to the personal data of its users in 2011 because the social media giant was “on our side.”

In a Twitter post on Sunday, Davidsen wrote,“They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side,”

Davidsen also went on to say that she and her team were able to gather unprecedented amounts of information from Facebook users, and also, their friends.

“Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing,” she said on Twitter.

Now, while that accusation is stunning in itself the next statement Davidsen made proves what we have said all along.

In a series of tweets, Davidsen that she is “100% positive that Facebook activity recruits and staffs people that are on the other side.”

Here is more from IJR:

“A former Obama campaign official is claiming that Facebook knowingly allowed them to mine massive amounts of Facebook data — more than they would’ve allowed someone else to do — because they were supportive of the campaign.

In a Sunday tweet thread, Carol Davidsen, former director of integration and media analytics for Obama for America, said the 2012 campaign led Facebook to “suck out the whole social graph” and target potential voters. They would then use that data to do things like appending their email lists.

When Facebook found out what they were doing, they were “surprised,” she said. But she also claimed they didn’t stop them once they found out:

“They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side,” Davidsen tweeted.

She added that she believes Facebook also recruits people “on the other side” too:

Davidsen began the tweet thread with a link to a Time article outlining the Obama campaign’s Facebook targeting campaign, which she said was codenamed “Project Taargus”:

That’s because the more than 1 million Obama backers who signed up for the [Facebook-based app] gave the campaign permission to look at their Facebook friend lists.

In an instant, the campaign had a way to see the hidden young voters. Roughly 85% of those without a listed phone number could be found in the uploaded friend lists.

What’s more, Facebook offered an ideal way to reach them. “People don’t trust campaigns. They don’t even trust media organizations,” says Goff. “Who do they trust? Their friends.”

The campaign called this effort targeted sharing. And in those final weeks of the campaign, the team blitzed the supporters who had signed up for the app with requests to share specific online content with specific friends simply by clicking a button.

More than 600,000 supporters followed through with more than 5 million contacts, asking their friends to register to vote, give money, vote or look at a video designed to change their mind.

A geek squad in Chicago created models from vast data sets to find the best approaches for each potential voter.

“We are not just sending you a banner ad,” explains Dan Wagner, the Obama campaign’s 29-year-old head of analytics, who helped oversee the project. “We are giving you relevant information from your friends.”

Now, that this information has been discovered, it proves more than ever that Mark Zuckerberg needs to be held responsible for his actions.

For too long, Zuckerberg has been given too much control in our country’s politics, and it is time that it ends before he can ruin another election.
