Why is audience targeting not working in SharePoint? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“Audience targeting does not seem to work. We are working with SharePoint online. I have enabled audience targeting for a specific library. Then I have filled in the audience field for one file with the name of a security group. he file is published. This all was done 3 weeks ago. Still my test user, who is not part of that security group, still sees the file with audience set to that specific security group. Can anyone help me with this? Any ideas what might be the problem?”
