Man is this article hard to read:

Oh, 2013. Magical times.

"There was even someone dressed up like a giant can with the words “The Can Kicks Back” — the motto for Fix the Debt’s millennial arm."

"The event was organized through a local dance group, and participants received a $65 stipend. Individuals — many of them college students — told The Huffington Post they heard about it on CraigsList, ads on entertainment websites and through their modeling agency."

"Most of the flash mob participants who spoke with The Huffington Post on Friday seemed to be there more for the stipend than the cause, although Amber Lee Brown, a student at George Mason University, said she went to the group’s website and liked what she read.

“They actually want to fix the problem, not argue against each other,” she said."

Russian operatives used Facebook ads to exploit divisions over black political activism and Muslims

QUOTE
The batch of more than 3,000 Russian-bought ads that Facebook is preparing to turn over to Congress shows a deep understanding of social divides in American society, with some ads promoting African-American rights groups including Black Lives Matter and others suggesting that these same groups pose a rising political threat, say people familiar with the covert influence campaign.

The Russian campaign — taking advantage of Facebook’s ability to simultaneously send contrary messages to different groups of users based on their political and demographic characteristics -- also sought to sow discord among religious groups. Other ads highlighted support for Democrat Hillary Clinton among Muslim women.

These targeted messages, along with others that have surfaced in recent days, highlight the sophistication of an influence campaign slickly crafted to mimic and infiltrate U.S. political discourse while also seeking to heighten tensions between groups already wary of one another.


Social media has made it so easy to hyper-target ads and messaging.
