About the Module

PoliDashboard is a data visualization tool designed to help voters, journalists, and campaign staffers to monitor the health of political discussions online and learn about the political and social issue ads that are being shown to users on Facebook and its various other products including Instagram. The data is automatically updated every four hours via the Facebook Ad API.

The dashboard is developed by the Social Media Lab at Ted Rogers School of Management in Toronto as part of an international election transparency initiative. Country-specific modules are presented in partnership with various academic and civic partners in countries where the Facebook Ad Library is available.
