When millions of people began creating Facebook accounts in 2006, they could never have imagined how much of their personal data would be collected over the years.
Today, more and more people are becoming aware of the fact that their personal data is indeed collected and sold by social media platforms such as Facebook. In more recent years, people are standing up to the social media giants to communicate that they want their data protected.
What sparked this change in perception and caused people to fight more for their privacy?
During the last year, Facebook has made drastic changes to its Ads Manager’s targeting options for advertisers, particularly for those serving ads in the housing, employment and credit industries (HEC).
These changes are the result of settlement agreements with leading civil rights organizations, who brought multiple lawsuits against the social media platform regarding discrimination. Originally announced in March of 2019, the platform stated that these changes were being made in an effort to do more to protect against discrimination in these three specific indistries.
Today, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about HEC ad regulations and how they could affect your Facebook campaigns.
Every year, World Mental Health Day is the one day that people break the silence about their triumphs and struggles with mental health. But why is it that there’s only one day per year that we feel comfortable having an open dialogue about mental health? On other days, we hide behind stigma and stay silent, as if our well-being is a taboo subject that should never be mentioned.
We here at Nebo believe talking about mental health should be anything but taboo in the workplace. We believe that so much so that we are implementing a Wellness Committee.
Mental illness isn’t something we talk about often in the workplace. It’s also something that you might overlook, until it touches someone you know — possibly even you.
No one is immune to experiencing anxiety, depression or any of the other narratives we hear about mental health. In fact, half of all mental illness begins by age 14, and yet most cases go undiagnosed and untreated. Fortunately, there is growing recognition of the importance of building mental resilience to deal with the world we live in today — including our work environment.
