So I logged into Facebook this morning and their genius advertising algorithm there suggested I “like” a post from this assclown named “Brother Nathanael”.
That’s right. Facebook thinks that it makes sense for someone who states in the religious views portion of his Facebook profile that he’s Jewish to like a hate mongering, anti-semitic, homophobic lunatic.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by this. Facebook has a history of not only allowing hate-vertising but also showing ads that are completely inappropriate. In fact, there was an article today in the Wall Street Journal talking about such Facebook “suggestions” as:
- Suggesting a 14 year old girl like a nude webcam modeling site
- Suggesting a 17 year old boy like a concealed-carry weapons holster because he lives in an area with lots of gun violence
- Showing pictures of a 14 year old girl to adult men as someone said men might be interested in dating
I get that there are going to be mistargeted ads, but this sort of shit should never happen. Why Facebook would even accept advertising from someone like this boggles the mind.
