Housing advocates filed a federal lawsuit against Facebook in a Manhattan courtroom this morning, alleging that the social network and advertising platform enables landlords and real estate brokers to exclude families with children, women, and other protected classes from seeing housing ads. ...

To prove their point, the plaintiffs created a fake realty firm and prepared dozens of housing advertisements, which they submitted to the social network for review. Facebook provided the fake firm with specific lists of groups that could be excluded from seeing the ads, including families with children, moms with children of certain ages, women or men, and other categories based on sex or family status.
