Tracking users after they log out and violating US wiretapping laws – these are the allegations behind a 15-billion-dollar nationwide class-action lawsuit filed against Facebook in California.

It's about time, legal action was taken! I have been arguing for sometime that FB, and the Personal Data Mining they are responsible for, is a direct violation of our 4th Amendment Rights! And when the state of California wins this case I will spearhead the movement in Colorado, it's about time damn it-thank God, I am not the only legal mind in this country, who has seen this and demanded action for the direct violation FB has been a part of.
Good for these people! I hope they sue the daylights out of this ongoing criminal enterprise known as facebook and also show up how it has merged with the government agencies which use it as well. Remember congressman Wiener did nothing wrong and yet he was set up and knocked down by facebook! They can destroy a popular congressman and make the rest of the congress cower in fear. This is what facebook is this is what they do. They are retro, they get people in touch with all the losers of our past. When we leave high school we should leave our past and become mature adults in the real world and learn and grow. Each new station in life can be a new opportunity to change and grow and try a new persona. This is one way we grow. All the world's a stage and each actor plays many parts said Shakespeare. We try on a new part one day and find delight in a new power over our life. This is much harder to do amongst our family and friends who tend to hold us in place. Identity can be wonderful but it is also limiting. Sometimes we need to allow ourselves to fall into the abyss of life to grow. I joined the Navy. Each new duty station became a chance to grow be take on a new persona. I left the Navy and went to Denver to go to DADC tech school. I went back and forth to Denver and each time new friends and experiences. Don't be afraid to grow. And don't bother with stupid retro operations like facebook. Now they've got timeline! Anybody who wants to know anything about you can look you up on this stupid website and think they will have a handle on you and push your buttons! Good luck with that! If I ever find out facebook has done something about me without my permission I will join up in this lawsuit.
I hope the entire company goes out of business. Nothing productive is created from Facebook.
Pretty funny, one Jew Zuckenberg, makes money and the Jewish Lawyerssmell that money (must be the nose), and they are ready to pounce and takeit. Facebook was just a spy operation anyway, whatever happens the Lawyerswill walk away with the most I'm sure, they always do !
Facebook excitedly supports CISPA. Disgusting isn't it?Sooner facebook dies the better.Warn all your friends and family that facebook is an unsafe website designed to spy on people, plus steal & sell all your personal data.
Facebook Falls Flat on its Face!!!(at least Yahoo! & Google provides values, like News/Weather/Searche s & Updates on the felatious Ms. Kardashian, etc...)
It will put off many potential share buyers.
It is a fake just like FB that didn't make the world trade mark.Mark to Market FB flopped and so the reason? Of course a frivolous lawsuit without merit, but of course.Shuff le, trudge, sludge, mud people.Rise up telepathic powers and rejoice connected automatically.
I'm glad. It's about time.
I can't find anything more stupid that using a free service (nobody forces you to use Facebook) and then sue the companyGet out of Facebook and social media, you idiots. Don't ypu have anything better to do?
Sorry about my lack of paragraphs in my previous post. I thought I had typed it right, but .... ?
I had similar experiences to meydaleh but, my friend, don't imagine thay you have closed your account. That is impossible with Facebook, though it might be if you get a new computer and new ISP ... and maybe use a new name. Meanwhile: I deleted all personal info in FB and changed my name - allowed once only by FB - but I still get occasional email messages. But why did I want to get rid of FB? Well because my info was misused and abused by another FB user with a grudge against me. I never was bothered about some government agency getting info on me from FB, because everything "anti" I've done has been open for decades. I was never bothered about ads and app offers, simply because I ignored them ... apparently some 90% of users are similar to me, so I expect FB to be just another dot.com bubble. No - if my experience is any guide - the greatest risk comes from some other FB user who decides to turn on you. As I mentioned: I have deleted all personal info, but still get occasional emails encouraging me to rejoin and 'share' + RT and a mryiad other sites which have "follow" buttons. Ignore the lot, if it's possible that someone has a grudge against you. Maybe that's why Lauren Lyster steers clear of FB.
