Facebook bans ‘juvenile boobies’ birds advert

by | 7th, September 2013

FACEBOOK has banned an advert for Christmas Island’s Bird ‘n’ Nature Week. The call to see the imperilled “juvenile booby” birds breached the website’s¬†decency guidelines.

Says Linda Cash, marketing manager of the Christmas Island Tourism Association:

“We presumed our original advert was blocked automatically so we appealed to Facebook directly who re-affirmed the campaign was banned due to the sexual language,¬†particularly the use of the word `boobies’,”

The Brown Booby, the Red-footed Booby and the Abbott’s Booby are of great appeal to twitchers.
