Below is a breakdown of the political ads that appear on the Facebook and Google ad networks. Neither Facebook nor Google provide data on which site within their network (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) that the ads appear. Therefore, we do not have any additional details other than the advertising network.
Facebook data may be incomplete.
