It seemed that the Presidential election between Trump and Hillary boiled down to some facebook ads - yea right. The big question, what did Russia hope to gain with the ads? Even if ads were ran for Hillary and Trump, what did Russia hope to achieve?

Politics have grown past ads and main stream media. Now we have twitter, facebook, and especially this free speech forum, and youtube. Even though facebook, twitter and youtube censor content, and continues to censor content, people still have outlets to speak their opinion. Running ads is outdated as a lot of people run ad blockers on their browsers.

the question remains, what did Russia hope to achieve.

What kind of stupid question is that?
Why would you think it was a stupid question?

Russian agents have been accused of running facebook ads. What did they hope to achieve with the ads?

Ads are outdated as a lot of people run ad blockers. Russia agents would have been better off creating a youtube channel and posting videos.

Just me
Russia is not as bad as South Korea. Seems Russians have been used by the Dems since the Clinton days.
