Site: Facebook may owe you $10

Class action suit settlement announced

Facebook.com recently settled a class action lawsuit for $20 million and now must pay out, Mashable.com reported over the weekend.

The settlement is over Facebook's past practice of using user profile photos in advertisements without the users' permission.

Twenty million dollars sounds like a lot until you consider there are 150 million U.S. Facebook users.

The problem is, if too many Facebook users claim their settlement, the settlement will go to a non-profit, Mashable reported.

Check your email and junk mail file for an email last week from legalnotice@facebookmail.com for full details.
