Trump and Clinton spent $81M on US election Facebook ads, Russian agency $46K

This is the headline from Tech Crunch magazine, or blog, and supposedly uses as a source what a Facebook official told Congress the other day.  Is this headline accurate? So, if accurate, what percent of Russian Facebook ads was the Russian investment?  46,000 divided by 81,000,000 = .000567, or, and here I am challenging junior high math from 58 years ago, just over one-twentieth of one percent. Really? Must have been some impressive targeting for 1/20 of one percent of the total Facebook Ads taken during the election to produce the outcome.

Just sayin’…..
