If you’re on Facebook you might have some money coming. A U.S. District court granted preliminary approval of a $90 million settlement with Facebook’s parent company (Meta Platforms) “to resolve a long-running class action accusing Facebook of tracking its subscribers’ activities on non-Facebook websites — even while signed out of their Facebook accounts.”
According to lawfirm DiCello Levitt Gutzler, individuals who, between April 22, 2010, and September 25, 2011 were Facebook users in the United States and visited non-Facebook websites that displayed the Facebook Like button, may be eligible for a payment from the settlement fund. Email notices from the claims administrator have started to go out.
Even those who do not receive an email notice are still permitted to file a claim, and the administrator will determine whether they are eligible. Visit the class action lawsuit website at fbinternettrackingsettlement.com.
It’s unknown how much each person can get at this stage in the lawsuit, as the final payout will depend on the number of claims submitted and additional fees.
