Regulations around political ads on the web has been uneven at best. That’s why WIRED is partnering with ProPublica, the award-winning news nonprofit, on their multi-newsroom project to collect and analyze political ads targeted to Facebook users. If you’re feeling especially ambitious, you can help train the algorithm ProPublica developed to automatically filter political ads. Since last year, Facebook launched its own political ad archive, but it currently doesn't include the more detailed targeting information. Reporters are also finding clearly political ads that Facebook’s algorithms don’t catch.
