Facebook reverses RNIB advert ban

The RNIB advert

Facebook has reversed its decision to ban an advert by the sight-loss charity the RNIB, which the social networking site had deemed too negative. It said in a statement: "In this instance we made a mistake and have contacted the charity to let them know and to apologise for any inconvenience caused." The RNIB advert shows a woman's face with a voiceover that says: "This is the moment that your doctor says you're losing your sight. You'll fear for your job, your home, your life. You'll be angry that there's nobody at the hospital who can help you face the future."
