@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

Further to @Wellyboot's reply, I'll add:

But anyone can buy that local newspaper and see those ads. But in this case, people are buying the local paper, i.e. having a Facebook account, and are still being denied the ads.

So this is the same as on buying the local paper, the seller cutting out the ads based on the individual who is buying that copy of the paper.
