Facebook users are getting a little something extra this month, just in time for the Holidays.
I’ve been asked, “is this check from Facebook real?” Yes! It is real!
Don’t miss yours!
If you received a check from Facebook, don’t throw it away! And, be sure to cash it within 90 days. It’s real and it’s legit.
Remember “Sponsored Stories” on Facebook? This $15 check comes from a class action settlement with regards to sponsored stories. The lawsuit, known as Fraley vs. Facebook, filed in 2011, claimed that Facebook was using people’s names and pictures without permission, in sponsored stories advertisements. Sponsored Story ads were a result of targeted marketing; when people would Like companies, it showed up as advertisements to their friends as if the person specifically recommended it.
After much deliberation, a judge approved the $20 million settlement in 2013. Facebook users were who filed a claim are starting to receive those payments. The checks are real!
