Facebook lost a class action lawsuit back in December 2022. This implies that they need to give $725 million to people who used Facebook between May 2007 and December 2022.
Basically, Facebook committed privacy violations during those years by using people’s data to access their private information and selling it to other companies.
So if you used Facebook between 2007 and 2022, you’re encouraged to file for free money.
It’s important to note that the longer you use it, the more money you will get. Experts think that most people who used Facebook during the previously stated years will get a couple of hundred dollars or, as they said, “triple digits.”
The factor that determines how much you’ll get is how long you used Facebook during the applicable period of May 20007 and December 2022.
The claim submission form will require your basic contact information, including your name, address, email, and phone number. You will also need to provide details about your website usage between 2007 and 2022, as well as your preferred payment method, which can be Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, or other forms.
It will also ask you for your Facebook username. You can get your username by going to your profile and tapping on the three-dot button next to “Edit Profile.” Then you scroll down to where it says “Your Profile Link.” The name you see after “https://www.facebook.com/” is your username.
The final filing day is August 25th at 11:59 p.m. Click here to file for money.
The money will start being deposited after September 7th, which is the scheduled date of the final settlement hearing.
