Are Your Facebook Messages Private? The Social Media Giant Faces Lawsuit

Facebook the social media giant faces a lawsuit for allegations claiming that Facebook scans its users private messages. Facebook has a class action lawsuit on its hands for supposedly monitoring peoples private messages. The allegations are that when users share a link to another website via private message that Facebook scans it to profile the sender’s web activity. The allegations further claim that Facebook takes that private information and shares it data aggregators, advertisers and marketers to rake in more money to Facebook.

Facebook has positioned itself to acquire pieces of the users’ profiles that are likely unavailable to other data aggregators” according to plaintiffs Matthew Campbell & Michael Hurley. Facebook has of course denied these allegations saying, the allegations are “without merit” and “We will defend ourselves vigorously.”

Facebook users believe they are communicating messages privately to one another without surveillance, so they transmit private information that in monitored scenarios would not normally be revealed. This presents a profitable situation for Facebook, because they can take the “private information” and submit it to data aggregators for marketing and advertising purposes.

Last year Facebook came under fire for privacy issues relating to a purposed change to its privacy policy. The change would allow users profile pictures and information to be used in order to create advertisements. As legal action loomed Facebook changed the wording for its privacy settings and paid out $20 million to compensate users who claimed their information was used without permission.
