How Facebook Ad Targeting Works and the Potential for Discrimination
- Advertising is now more targeted, with algorithms creating social feeds for an audience of one.
- A research group at Northeastern University has spent thousands of dollars buying ads to figure out who Facebook will show them to and why.
Facebook Ad Targeting:
- There are two parties that decide who sees an ad on Facebook: the advertiser and Facebook.
- Facebook decides who in the pool of the advertiser's target audience will actually see the ad through an automated calculation based on what they know about the user.
- Facebook automatically analyzes the content of an ad to compare it to a user's interests, fueled by data from their profile, activities, purchases, and more.
- Facebook's algorithms are trained to not show people ads they won't be interested in, but this may lead to segregated audiences.
- Ads related to employment, housing, and credit are legally protected and cannot discriminate against demographic groups.
- The research group tested out ads for job openings in different industries without targeting any demographic groups and found skewed audiences.
- The ad delivery system inevitably recreates groupings defined by their protected class, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
- Facebook's ad delivery system prevents advertisers who want to reach a broad audience of users from doing so, according to a complaint filed by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
- Custom audiences and targeting features are industry practice, used by Google, LinkedIn, and Twitter as well.
- The industry as a whole hasn't answered when it is unacceptable for an algorithm to decide that relevant audiences are segregated ones.
- Facebook is revamping its targeted advertisements after settling lawsuits with civil rights groups and removing some of the targeting attributes that advertisers could use to discriminate against demographic groups.
How to Remove Those Annoying Ads on Your Xiaomi Phone: Disable MIUI Ads on Redmi Note 8, Others
Hello everyone and welcome to Gadget 360. Throughout my years in the tech space, I've used many good Xiaomi smartphones running MIUI. Every time I've recommended one of these phones to a friend or a colleague, I've always told them that this is a great phone, but it has a lot of ads. Now, my favorite take on Android comes from OnePlus' Oxygen OS. It's like stock Android with some very useful additions. Sadly, the same can't be said about MIUI. I mean, I really like some of its customizations, but the thing is the ads. The ads in MIUI are unbearable. You open a folder, you see an ad. You open the browser, you see an ad. You pull down the notification shade, there's another ad. I mean, there are more ads in MIUI than in a cricket match that you watch on TV. And this just gets on my nerves. So, in this video, I'm going to show you how to tweak a bunch of settings in MIUI 11 to try and get rid of the pesky ads and make MIUI more usable.
- Deactivate MSA (MIUI system ads) process: In previous versions of MIUI, you had to keep toggling the switch off multiple times before it actually got disabled. But in our experience, it's much simpler to deactivate it in MIUI 11. Open the Settings app, look for Passwords and Security, and select Authorization and Relocation. Over here, you'll see MSA listed with a green little Android logo. Toggle it off. While you are here, do the same for get apps, which should be the last one in the list. You will get a 10-second warning message asking you if you are sure you want to do it. After the countdown, press revoke. In case it doesn't let you toggle it off in the first go, try it again till it's off. Even if you reboot your phone, MSA should still be disabled.
- Disable User Experience Program and personalized recommendations: Apart from this, now go back to Passwords and Security, select Privacy, and scroll down to the User Experience Program section. Over here, disable the toggle switch for User Experience Program and send diagnostic data automatically. Below that, you'll see add services. Disable personalized recommendations for that as well. These steps alone should take care of any ads that you might see within the stock apps.
- Disable notifications from each app: But this won't stop those same apps from flooding your notification shade with spammy alerts. For that, you'll have to open the individual apps and disable the notifications from each one. Here's how to do that:
- Open MI Video and tap the profile tab at the bottom right corner. Next, tap Settings. Now disable online recommendations, push notifications, and personalized recommendations.
- Open Music and tap the hamburger icon in the top left corner. Tap Settings, then select Advanced Settings, and scroll all the way down and disable receive recommendations. You could disable the other settings below it as well.
- Open the File Manager app and tap the hamburger icon in the top left corner. Tap Settings, then tap About, and then disable recommendations.
- Open the Downloads app and tap the three vertical dots icon in the top right corner. Next, disable show recommended content.
- Open the Browser app, then tap the hamburger icon in the upper right corner and tap the Settings icon. Over here, disable content field if you don't want any weird content randomly popping up on your screen. Apart from this, go to Advanced and make sure show ads toggle is disabled. Now move back a step in the main settings page of the app and then tap on Privacy and Security. Over here, make sure personalized services are disabled.
- Open the Security app and tap the call icon in the upper right corner of the app. It is the feature settings section. Over here, tap Cleaner and disable received recommendations down the list. You can also disable the remind to clean option. Go back a step and in the main settings menu of the app, scroll down and disable received recommendations. For more privacy, you could go to the data usage option and disable report data usage input toggle.
- Open the Themes app and tap the My Page tab in the bottom right corner. Tap Settings and disable recommendations.
- Open the folder and long press the name to rename it. You'll then see a toggle switch to turn off promoted apps.
- Uninstall unwanted pre-installed apps: Now that we have taken all the steps to get a read or at least to minimize ads and unwanted notifications from the stock apps, it's time to deal with the excess apps that come pre-installed. There are plenty of them, including Dailyhunt, WP's Office, Opera Mini, and some small games such as Ludo Master for Pewter glass, etc. Thankfully, most of them can be uninstalled, including ones like Me Community, Me Store, and Me Credit. To do this, long-press on the app you wish to uninstall and tap App info in the pop-up bubble. After this, simply tap the uninstall button at the bottom and confirm the action by tapping OK.
- Disable notifications from unwanted apps: After this, you should be left with a cleaner-looking MIUI 11 interface. When you first set it up, you should see lesser to absolutely no promotional alerts of ads. Some stock apps might still send you alerts every now and then. And if you wish to disable these alerts from such apps altogether, then there's a way to do that as well. To do this, simply long-press on the alert from the notification shade, and you'll see a toggle switch to turn off notifications from the app altogether. Disable this, and you should never receive a notification from that particular app. If you want to proactively do this for other apps too, then simply go to the Settings tab, tap Notifications, scroll through the list, and disable notifications for any other apps you wish.
This is how I disabled unwanted ads, blocked spammy notifications, and removed bloatware on MIUI 11. But I really wish Xiaomi would disable ads and spam by default. A phone with good hardware shouldn't be held back by a stream of spam. I really hope this process makes MIUI 11 much more usable and less intrusive for you. That's all for now.
