"Because of Facebook's impact on the housing market, we'll ask the court to implement a plan of community education and outreach to housing providers to inform them of their obligation not to discriminate".

If you want to see everything Facebook knows about you, just go to the upper right hand corner and scroll down to settings.

In fact, the lesson I take away from this actually goes the other way: It makes me a little more concerned about all the money advertisers have all spent on Facebook ads over the years-because if the information they're showing about me is so inaccurate, who knows what the info on anyone else I've been targeting is like?

Although I've been on the platform since 2004, I don't use the Facebook app on my phone, I only keep Messenger on my phone for the short periods of time when I absolutely need it, and I manually delete the categories that get listed automatically under my ad preferences - once every few months.
