Response to Fast Walker 52 (Original post)

9. One thing I don't understand from this piece-- does anyone else get this???

 

How does Cambridge Analytica get INTO Facebook and get this information on so many people and then somehow alter the Facebook algorithm to alter what shows up? Facebook doesn't have ads --per se-- in the main feed. There are suggested posts, but I assumed that Facebook controlled the algorithm for that. This article indicates that C.A. was getting into the Facebook algorithm somehow.
