Facebook was sued in 2018 for discrimination against targeted ads and settled in March 2019. All advertisements that were pointed out this time were deployed before 2018.

Although ProPublica asked for comments from companies that were pointed out that they had advertised discriminatory advertising, most companies did not respond, and Edward Jones, the financial company, said, `` We discriminate in job advertising, recruitment and employment. I strongly oppose the allegation that the act was done. '

Under the Equal Employment Opportunity Committee, dozens of complaints have been received regarding discrimination in Facebook's targeted advertising, many of which are still pending.
