“A lawsuit that accused Facebook of misappropriating users’ images ended with a settlement on Monday.  The agreement states that the social media site has to pay approximately 614,000 Facebook users $15 each for using their information for advertising purposes. While approximately 150 million Facebook users’ images and likenesses were allegedly used to promote products and services through the Sponsored Stories program, only users who entered a claim form by May 2, 2013, were eligible to receive settlement funds.  As part of the settlement, Facebook will give users greater information about and control over how they are featured in the Sponsored Stories.”
