A complaint filed against Facebook alleges that the social media giant gives its housing-related advertisers control over who sees their ads — leading to discrimination.

On Friday, the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that it has filed a complaint against the rapidly growing Menlo Park, California-based company.

According to HUD, Facebook’s advertising platform enables landlords and home sellers to discriminate in their targeting of renters and home buyers — a violation of the Fair Housing Act.
