Facebook’s advertising policy has been exposed. This time he has targeted teenagers between 13 and 17 years of age in Australia. He has also approved to show advertisements like alcohol, smoking, gambling and instant weight loss on his platform for just 3 dollars ie 225 rupees. Australia’s lobby group Reset revealed this in a recently released report.
The group investigated by creating a Facebook page named after the ‘OG News Network’. It turned out that Facebook itself does not advertise directly on the taor, but if alcohol, cigarette companies want to target children and show them these ads, Facebook does not stop it. These also include advertisements such as online dating.
Not only this, Facebook has also proposed to reach 7.40 lakh children between the age of 13 to 17 years of advertisements that are being released through this new page. When the group went through the parameters of the advertisement, it was revealed that they should have shown the advertisement only to those above the age of 18 years, they were also reaching the streets easily.
Government did not show ad for strict vaccine appeal
The government has also been tightened against Facebook, which is a boast of monopoly in Australia. The government recently enacted a law and was forced to pay news publishers in lieu of news reports on Facebook. Due to this, Facebook has not even issued an advertisement for the government’s appeal to get the vaccine.
