Talk about geeky fun.
Technology is now getting to be more fun and hilarious without being a geek yourself.
PBS Newshour has recently created a new tool (more of a new toy application) that lets users make personal political advertisements easily. It is a great way to get a laugh out of your friends and relatives who will view your political ad. You can even create a dumb political video with you as the villain of the ad.
Make Your Own Political Ad With Your Facebook Data (link)Whatever political ad you decide to make, whether character, small-town, credential, metro-America, biographical, or attack type, it will be fun and easy to make. All you need to do is to go to https://www.pbs.org/newshour/adlibs/, log in to your Facebook account, and just follow the instructions on the PBS Newshour site. It is that easy.
While doing all this, you can even stop at various sections of the video of your choice and insert any Facebook posts or photos you want to insert. You definitely control the ad’s template all throughout.
On the learning side, you get to see just how political ads are made and the rigid guidelines these ads follow. As it turns out, the application does not allow you to make attack ads against anybody on Facebook except yourself.
