Facebook to Ban Online Gambling Ads


facebook online gamblingThe popular social networking website Facebook.com has come under fire this week for its updated privacy policy, much of which is an attempt to bring additional exposure to the site’s advertisers. Now they have announced that online gambling related ads will be filtered.

The new rule applies to the so-called ‘morally unacceptable’ products such as those dreaded spy cameras, firearms (these include paint ball guns), tobacco products and just about anything related to gambling, including bingo.

The site gets more specific when it comes to gambling, making mention of the filtering of online gaming sites that, in addition to bingo, includes poker, casino games and sportsbooks.

Inflammatory religious content, politically religious agendas and nudity have also been targeted by the new policy.
