You may be eligible for money if you were a Facebook user in the United States who visited non-Facebook websites that displayed the Facebook “like” button.
"Preliminary approval" has been given for a $90 million class action settlement over Facebook's like button, according to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
The suit is about Facebook tracking what you're doing online, even when you're not on Facebook, even if you are not signed into your account, on websites that showed Facebook's like button.
The court says this happened between 2010 and 2011.
It hasn't been announced yet how much money people will be getting.
