Facebook allows discrimination against disabled people, shows investigation
Social networking site Facebook is allowing advertisers to discriminate against people with disabilities and also people of different ethnic backgrounds.
An investigation into the advertisement options of the site has revealed that the Facebook allows people to choose their target audience based on race or physical conditions.
For example if a house owner wants to put up “for rent” advertisement on Facebook he can choose his target audience and select people that he does not want as tenants.
Advertisers can exclude people with disabilities if they are not the target customers.
Such marketing and advertising is against the law and is highly discriminatory.
