Facebook Faces Legal Challenge Over Allegedly Biased Ad Algorithm
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit against Facebook, alleging that the social media giant's advertising algorithm perpetuates gender and racial bias. The ACLU claims that Facebook's algorithm discriminates against women and people of color by showing job ads to a predominantly male and white audience. This legal action highlights the ongoing concerns surrounding algorithmic bias and its potential impact on equal opportunity and fairness in advertising.
