Facebook Internet Tracking Litigation – What is It all About?

Known as In Re Facebook Internet Tracking Litigation case, it is a class-action suit that accuses Facebook of “improperly obtaining and collecting data”. These data were collected through third-party websites, with a Facebook Like button.

Though the technicalities behind the data collection aren’t clear, it however allegedly happened between April 22, 2010 and September 26, 2011. Meanwhile, though Facebook has denied any wrongdoing, it chose to settle the matter outside of court before it went to trial, where a judge will rule on the merits. Meanwhile, the settlement amount is pegged at $90 million.

Who is Eligible for the Lawsuit  Inclusion and Subsequent Payout?

You’re eligible for the settlement payout if;

  • You were a Facebook User in the United States from April 22, 2010 through September 26, 2011.
  • You visited non-Facebook websites that displayed the Facebook Like button.

How Much Will You Get From The Class Action Lawsuit?

 It’s impossible to tell how much you can get at this stage in the lawsuit, as the final payout will depend on the number of claims submitted and additional fees. All settlement class members will be paid in equal amounts.

However, this is a $90 million dollar settlement. There are around 220 million Facebook users in the US. Attorneys fees are what, 40%? That leaves $54 million for payout to a pool of 220 million potential claimants. That’s less than a dollar per person. Of course not everyone will file a claim but even if only 10% did that’s less than $3 per person.
