So now, because advertisers have the option to target audiences with their ads, Facebook is being accused of violating Fair Housing rules. I can almost remember the internet.

For those that have never had to deal with Fair Housing, they are relentless. Personalty I think their claim here is ridiculous but common sense seems to be a rare commodity these days.
