Facebook is an American online social media and social networking service company based in Menlo Park, California. Facebook was founded by the legendary Mark Zuckerberg with his Harvard college roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. Initially the founders limited the accessibility and usage of the website to Harvard university students only and gradually they expanded the usage to high school students and then to anyone who is of 13 years of age or more. Facebook has more than 2 billion of active users which is really a huge opportunity for those companies who regularly does detail profiling of persons from various segments of the society.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against the social media giant Facebook by two US based law firms jointly claiming that Facebook gathered personal information of its users without adequately obtaining users’ consent or making clear that information was being used and/or sold and/or shared for other purposes which are economically beneficial to Facebook. This is in violation of state and federal laws.

An example of what Facebook does with your data:

It has been alleged against Facebook that they have exploited users’ personal information without taking proper consent from the user and those information have been used by another organization for analyzing detail profile of every individual. The incident recently came to the public’s attention following news that Cambridge Analytica used a third-party app to collect over 87 million Facebook users’ personal information, using that data to create detailed profiles of Facebook users. www.DataPrivacyLawsuit.com Notes
