HUD Files Complaint Against Facebook

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has filed an official discrimination complaint against Facebook. Gizmodo reports that HUD claims the site’s dizzying array of advertising tools makes it simple for advertisers to illegally exclude wide swathes of the population from seeing housing ads.

In a press release, HUD wrote that Facebook’s “targeted advertising” model more or less constitutes a way for said advertisers to skirt the federal Fair Housing Act.
