US govt alleges Facebook enabled housing ad discrimination


Facebook has another headache with regards to housing ads. The federal government has recorded charges that the social media site violated the Fair Housing Act by enabling promotions to oppress some protected groups. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) filed its dissension a week ago and finished the organization's promotions. In 2016 a ProPublica examination revealed that anybody advertising housing could separate based on race, and after a year, a follow-up examination found that Facebook hadn't tackled the issue. The organization had refreshed its promoting strategies, however regardless of those updates; unfair advertisements still endured the organization's audit procedure.
