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.
