The art of the headline.

Hacker News discusses an article titled "Facebook Is Letting Job Advertisers Target Only Men".

What the article goes on to discuss (and actually summarizes in the very first paragraph below the title itself), is that Facebook can target ads to a specific sex.

Which means that Facebook is just as easily letting job advertisers target only women.

But that wouldn't have made such a catchy title, would it?
