Facebook hit with housing discrimination charge, Verizon to offer free spam tools
This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now.
The government says that Facebook violates the Fair Housing Act by allowing ads to target certain groups of people and exclude others.
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development filed the charge as a follow up to a complaint from last summer citing discrimination through landlords and home sellers.
By excluding people based on race, religion, and other factors.
Some of Verizon's call filter service tools are going free, offering a chunk of what customers who pay 2.99 a month for the service get.
These features include spam alerts, reporting tools, and the blocking of robo calls.
All Post Bay customers with compatible devices can take advantage.
And some features only work based on the type of phone you have.
And finally, Twitter is now offering a dark mode for the iOS version of the company's app.
Designed to lessen the strain on your eyes and your battery.
The feature is an update to a mode that first premiered in 2016.
Now users will have three choices in dark mode.
Dim, lights out and automatic.
