Dicks and boobs on Facebook

Amazed to see this phallus appearing in my Facebook newsfeed this week in various advertisements. They really need to improve their processes when approving sponsored content.

It's interesting to consider the impact Facebook is having on the way people consume information. So many people visit the site each day that it has overtaken every other form of media in Australia, reaching more viewers than television or radio.

I wonder how it may influence perception of the events reported within it.

Consider this screenshot below and how the appreciation for breasts in one post creates a different context for viewing the image in the news story below it.

Imagine if Head Chef's penis pic had appeared above an image of a child eating a sausage?
