Targeting teens for ads based on their emotional vulnerabilities. That’s what, according to Wired.com, was discovered about Facebook recently in an exposé in The Australian where the publication acquired a leaked in-house Facebook document. In the 23-page document Facebook offered an advertiser the opportunity of a lifetime with the possibility of access to over 6 million teens at times when they feel depressed, insecure, like a failure, or have other vulnerable emotions.
When the story broke abroad, the company quickly disputed The Australian‘s claims, stating that the information in the document met Facebook’s privacy standards. However, their official response left many questions unanswered and did not fully address all privacy concerns. And privacy advocates are up in arms about the micro-targeting of kids as young as 14, especially five years after the social media company was exposed for using News Feeds to target nearly 700,000 users with emotionally-manipulating news stories. Since the latest discovery was made, dozens of concerned organizations from Brazil, parts of Europe, Mexico, the US and other places have demanded Facebook be forthcoming and open about what’s really going on.
One thing this shows is that even in the midst of opposition and public promises to pacify concerns of any opposition, globalists will still forge ahead on their goals using all kinds crafty deceptions.
