Good Old "Mark Suck-a-Terd".
five users of the service – who complained about their faces being featured in ads on Facebook
Facebook snootily claimed that the case was "without merit".
Facebook will create an easily accessible mechanism that enables users to view the subset of their interactions and other content that have been displayed in Sponsored Stories.
The company is also required to give users control over which "interaction" and "content" they deem acceptable to be featured in Facebook's Sponsored Stories.
Facebook users who readily clicked on "Like" buttons on the site were about to be in for a surprise because their faces would then begin appearing alongside third-party adverts served via the network
Facebook confirmed at the time that users would not be gifted with an opt-out option from its Sponsored Stories, all of which led some to claim the company had been disingenuous about its "Like" button,
The five members of Facebook who filed the suit had argued that the network violated California law by running certain "Likes" with various ads without allowing those individuals to opt out or – better still – to earn a couple of bucks from the process.
This is a subset of what a pack of Arseholes Mark Suck-a-Terd and co., have been, are and always will be, and what a pack of unquestioning "dumb fucks" the users of it tend to be......
In essence, Facebook has certain good functions, but like a daisy growing on a crust of dried shit on a sewerage pond.... the fucking crap going on underneath, in Corporation Facebook - is ALL bad and it's a mile deep.
It's a pristine example of just how fucking unethical people and the corporations they create, actually are.
