Facebook was charged today by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for violating the Fair Housing Act by encouraging, enabling, and causing housing discrimination through the company's advertising platform.

Today's action follows HUD's investigation of a Secretary-initiated complaint filed on August 13, 2018. HUD alleges that Facebook unlawfully discriminates based on race, color, national origin, religion, familial status, sex, and disability by restricting who can view housing-related ads on Facebook's platforms and across the internet.  Further, HUD claims Facebook mines extensive data about its users and then uses those data to determine which of its users view housing-related ads based, in part, on these protected characteristics.
