Dutch newspaper Reformatorisch Dagblad (RD) faced a storm of social media criticism after the Christian newspaper distributed flyers calling for protest against a Suitsupply ad campaign showing kissing men with its newspapers on Monday.
Clothing brand Suitsupply's new ad campaign is not being warmly accepted in the Netherlands. The campaign consists of posters in bus shelters and billboards showing two being affectionate with each other. Over 30 were broken and dozens of others were taped shut or covered in graffiti across the country over the past days, CEO Fokke de Jong confirmed to NU.nl.
Four in ten Dutch use the same password for multiple online services, such as email, social media and online banking, according to a survey commissioned by the Ministry of Justice and Security. One in five said they use the same password for more than 10 different accounts, NU.nl reports.
This week Facebook is launching an advertisement campaign in the Netherlands aimed at teaching Dutch Facebook users how to recognize fake news. Ads with tips on how to do so will appear on the social media platform itself. Facebook aims to reach "as good as all Dutch people who have Facebook" this week, NOS reports.
The campaign is based on a series of tips that can also be found elsewhere on Facebook. It includes tips like be skeptical about headlines, take a good look at the web address, and check the source.
Minister Edith Schippers of Public Health, Welfare and Sport has decided to remove the "The Netherlands is changing, healthcare is changing along" advertisements from the website www.dezorgverandertmee.nl.
An Albert Heijn advertising campaign promoting dirt cheap "crystal" glassware violated Dutch rules because the glasses do not contain lead, and are thus not authentically "crystal," advertising watchdog Reclame Code Commissie (RCC) ruled Tuesday. Several Albert Heijn (AH) customers complained about the grocery chain's advertisement campaign for fake crystal glasses last December.
