Facebook hit with housing discrimination charge by US government

first_img Facebook said it has been trying to work with HUD to prevent discrimination.”While we were eager to find a solution, HUD insisted on access to sensitive information — like user data — without adequate safeguards. We’re disappointed by today’s developments, but we’ll continue working with civil rights experts on these issues,” a company spokesperson said in an emailed statement.The social media giant also said that it had reached “historic agreements” with the National Fair Housing Alliance, the ACLU and other advocacy groups on changes to its advertising system. The charge marks the latest incident that calls into question how Facebook conducts its business. It’s been under fire over how it collects user data for the past year.Here is HUD’s filing: Tags 13 1:31 “Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson says. Omar Marques/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images The US Department of Housing and Urban Development charged Facebook on Thursday with allegedly violating the Fair Housing Act through targeted ads.The charge follows an August 2018 complaint that alleged the social network lets landlords and home sellers engage in housing discrimination through advertising that can exclude people based on race, national origin, religion, gender or disability.”Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. “Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.”The initial complaint came after a ProPublica investigation in 2016 showed that housing advertisements could be targeted at and away from specific groups. ProPublica followed up a year later, showing that the targeting hadn’t stopped.According to HUD’s lawsuit, Facebook allowed advertisers to exclude people who were born outside the US, non-Christians, interested in accessibility issues or interested in Latino culture. HUD also accuses Facebook of allowing advertisers to exclude people based on their neighborhoods or whether they have children.”Even as we confront new technologies, the fair housing laws enacted over half a century ago remain clear — discrimination in housing-related advertising is against the law,” HUD general counsel Paul Compton said in a statement. “Just because a process to deliver advertising is opaque and complex doesn’t mean that it exempts Facebook and others from our scrutiny and the law of the land.” Now playing: Watch this: Share your voicecenter_img See how much time you’re wasting on Facebook Comments First published at 5:11 a.m. PT.Updates, 6:16 a.m. and 7:45 a.m.: Adds more details, Facebook’s comment and HUD’s filing.

Before joining the Snapchat maker, Vollero had been working for 15 years in finance roles at Mattel.The replacement of Vollero with Stone comes after Snap had been struggling for months with lower-than-expected user growth numbers and a declining share price. These problems also manifested themselves in the company’s most recent Q1 2018 earnings report, which showed anemic user growth, to the tune of 4 million for the quarter.Following those results, Snap’s stock cratered 17%. At the close of the markets, Snap shares traded for $10.74 on Monday, down more than 50% from a 12-month high a year ago.Monday’s news was greeted with muted optimism by investors, who sent the stock up just 1% in after-hours trading.Some of their hesitation may be explained by the fact that much of Snap’s problems seem to be structural and product-related. The company rolled out an ambitious redesign earlier this year that was supposed to make the service more accessible to new users, but ended up causing an uproar with Snap’s existing user base.All the while, Facebook has been rapidly growing Instagram, a key competitor to Snapchat. Instagram reached 500 million daily active users last summer, while Snapchat has been stuck below 200 million daily active users.CNBC was first to report the news of Vollero’s replacement Monday.center_img Snap is swapping out its CFO: The corporate owner of Snapchat is replacing its current CFO Drew Vollero with Tim Stone, a longtime Amazon executive.The company announced the news in a regulatory filing Monday, stating that it had come to an agreement with Vollero on Friday and that he would continue to serve until May 15.“I am deeply grateful for Drew and his many contributions to the growth of Snap,” Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said in a statement relayed in the filing. “He has done an amazing job as Snap’s first CFO, building a strong team and helping to guide us through our transition to becoming a public company. The discipline that he has brought to our business will serve us well into the future. We wish Drew continued success and all the best.”On May 16, Stone will take over as the new CFO of the company. Stone had been working in various roles at Amazon since 1998. He most recently served as the company’s VP of finance, and before that had served as the company’s VP of physical stores.last_img read more
