Call me if you want an expert opinion before running articles on Facebook ads

I'm a nerd for this sort of thing, and as a former writer for various news outlets, I respect the importance of thorough fact-checking and holding those in power to account - including Facebook.

If anyone wants to drill deep into the technical side of these stories, I'm willing and able to get involved. You can contact me through my company's contact form, or through Twitter @TomDavenport if the matter is non-urgent (I turned off notifications from there years ago).

The fact is, there's plenty of ways that Facebook does a lot of good without credit. And yet it can be exploited to influence entire populations. We need to ask the right questions if we want a full an accurate picture of what's going on, so we can hold bad actors to account without punishing a platform that brings real economic benefits to so many of us.
