NEW YORK (AP) — Fair housing advocates have sued Facebook, saying it lets landlords and real estate brokers target advertising to discriminate against families with children, women and others.

Facebook said during the past year and half that it would put a stop to this type of discrimination but housing advocates say they have proof that it did not do so. Employers have been using the same Facebook features to discriminate on the basis of sex, age and race by targeting ads that exclude groups.
FB stock is down to $151, from a high of $193 in February.
