Not posting the email itself, but it is about receiving some form of settlement based on this:


Overview of the Proposed Settlement
Fraley, et al. v. Facebook, Inc., et al., Case No. CV-11-01726 RS

If you or your child have or have had a Facebook account and a Facebook Sponsored Story featured your or your child’s name or profile picture, you or your child may be a “Class Member” in a class action lawsuit (the "Action").

Sponsored Stories are a form of advertising that typically contain posts which appear on facebook.com about or from a Facebook user or entity that a business, organization, or individual has paid to promote so there is a better chance that the posts will be seen by the user or entity’s chosen audience. For more information about Sponsored Stories, please review the Notice.

A class action lawsuit against Facebook, Inc. ("Facebook") claimed that Facebook unlawfully used Class Members’ names, profile pictures, photographs, likenesses, and identities to advertise or sell products and services through Sponsored Stories, without obtaining Class Members’ consent. Facebook denies any wrongdoing and any liability whatsoever. No court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any liability.

Husband got it, but I didn't. Assumed it was a scam.

Same reaction.

I have always been annoyed by Facebook for allowing that sort of sponsorship, but for $10 idgafos

It's real but it's class action which means you'll get practically nothing for opting in. The only real winner in Class Action suits are the Lawyers.
