ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — Governor Andrew Cuomo is asking for the Department of Financial Services to investigate what advertisers can see on Facebook.

Cuomo says this is based on claims that Facebook allows state-regulated advertisers to tap into users' personal data. This would allow advertisers to filter who can see their ads based on race, religion and gender.
