SF GATE - Jan 29 - The legal case called Fraley vs. Facebook was filed in 2011 after Facebook did one of its familiar "let's break it and see what happens" moves - using the names and photos of its members in "Sponsored Stories" advertising just because they may have "liked" a business. Facebook offered a $20M settlement. Everyone who files an authorized claim by the May 2 deadline is eligible for a payment of as much as $10. If too many people make authorized claims, to the point where each claim is worth only $4.99 or less, then the entire settlement will instead go to a long list of not-for-profit groups that help educate people and children on the safe use of social media. The $20M pot is further diluted because it also has to cover attorneys' fees and costs.
