Fraley v. Facebook, Inc. Class Action Settlement

If you haven’t heard already, you most likely would be eligible for the Fraley vs. Facebook Class Action Settlement once the Court gives final approval to the Settlement. The Class Action is against Facebook’s new “Sponsored Story” feature where they might be¬†inadvertently feature you to an audience you’re not aware of. Frankly, as a software engineer, I see mistakes like this very easy to occur.

Facebook would be paying out $20 million to fund this Class Action! But with the ginormous user pool that they have, everybody is expected to receive a maximum of $10 (it all depends on how many times they have featured you in a Sponsor Story.)

Keep an eye out on your inbox for an email regarding this class action. You will need your unique Class Action Member ID number (included in the email).
