@ratfox >>>That doesn't mean that when putting an ad for a job in the local newspaper, you need to also place an ad in every local newspaper in the country<<<

You're right it doesn't, but the local papers don't print a copy with specific ads for each individual reader, everyone has an equal chance. Anyone from out of the area looking to relocate will (should?) be actively looking on their own initiative.

Asking FB to show the job ad. only to a specified group does explicitly exclude a large potential applicant pool to the eventual detriment of the company placing the advert, Job ads. are and need to be a special category.

FB will either fight this to the supreme court or add a 'find a job' service to let people browse the ads.
