Claiming your part of the Facebook class-action lawsuit

I’m sure most of you have heard about the class-action lawsuit that has Facebook cutting checks to millions of users.

The lawsuit involves questionable practices surrounding Facebook’s user data sharing. To file a claim for your piece of the $725 million settlement, you just need to live in the U.S. and have had an active Facebook account between May 24, 2007, and Dec. 22, 2022.

I submitted my claim yesterday and am just waiting to hear back how much they owe me. It’s probably just a few measly bucks, but I’ll report back here once I find out!

If you have/had a Facebook account and want to file your own claim, or you want more info on what the lawsuit is all about, check out The Penny Hoarder’s article below.


that was easy, thanks Will.

Yes, I plan to submit a claim today. I filed an AMEX claim back in 2019 and just got notice last week that the payout is $166 and change. I don’t even remember what the claim was for, but I’ll take it.


Thanks for the reminder to submit a claim for this Facebook class action lawsuit. I was never a big user of the site but did have an account, but stopped using it because of the insistence to make my account more publicly accessible ( right around the time when it became evident that there was censorship in play on the website).
I have done claims for other class action lawsuits and it worth the effort.


Well, cool. I have never participated in anything like this, so I’ll take whatever I get!


I submitted my claim to Facebook, too.

By the way, I’ve received payments from past settlements. It doesn’t matter how big or small - it’s money in my account!


I am still trying to decide if I should do this or not. I didn’t join FB until 2009 that still counts right?

I need to check on the status of my claim. It’s been a couple week already!
