Facebook has received preliminary approval for a settlement in a class action suit over their “sponsored stories” campaign. In that method of “advertising,” they use pictures and names of Facebook “members” in “advertisements” to those members’ “friends.”

The Center for Public Interest Law is not happy:

. . . attorneys for the nonprofit Center for Public Interest Law had argued that Facebook should be required to get affirmative consent from parents before using the name or photo of any Facebook user who is under 18. Center attorney Robert Fellmeth said Monday that he will file a further objection to the settlement and vowed to take the case to appellate court if Seeborg grants final approval.

Remember, in Facebook you are not the customer. You are the product.
