Facebook litigating $15B user internet track case

Facebook Accused Of Tracking Users’ Internet Activity By Consuella Pachico – “Facebook is facing multidistrict litigation over allegations that the social media site tracked users’ internet activity after they logged off. Facebook is insisting that users cannot sue because they were not harmed by the site’s tracking activities. In response to users’ claim that their privacy rights were violated by post-logoff tracking, Facebook states that nothing in the amended complaint identifies “how the alleged violations caused plaintiffs to suffer real, actually existing injuries that are not abstract, conjectural, or hypothetical.”
