Facebook-Meta To Pay $90M To Settle Lawsuit For Spying User’s Like Button Activity

The parent company of Facebook, Meta, has agreed to pay $90 million (estimated 676 crores) to settle a lawsuit over how the social media company tracked users’ internet activity.

The case, which was filed ten years ago, questions Facebook’s ability to see users’ online activity after they have signed out. 

Because it allowed access to a vast amount of user data, Facebook’s signature “like” button plug-in has been a big contributor to this process. 

In true Facebook form, the company collected cookies (basically a trail of a user’s Facebook activity), allowing access to what sites a user visited, what they checked and purchased, and other interactions they may have had with the website.
