About the Sponsored Stories Claim
Sponsored Stories are a form of advertising that typically contain posts which appear on Facebook.com about or from a Facebook user or entity that a business, organization, or individual has paid to promote, so there is a better chance that the posts will be seen by the user or entity’s chosen audience.
The class action lawsuit against Facebook claimed that Facebook unlawfully used Facebook users’ names, profile pictures, photographs, likenesses, and identities to advertise or sell products and services through Sponsored Stories, without obtaining consent.
If you have or had a Facebook account, take advantage of this class action settlement offer to receive up to $10 in compensation for possibly being included in Sponsored Stories on Facebook.
