FRALEY V. FACEBOOK, INC.* *You are receiving this e-mail because you may
have been featured in a "Sponsored Story" on Facebook prior to December 3,
2012.* * A federal court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation
from a lawyer. * *Why did I get this notice? *This Notice relates to a
proposed settlement ("Settlement") of a class action lawsuit ("Action")
filed against Facebook relating to a particular Facebook feature called
"Sponsored Stories." According to available records, you may be a "Class
Member." *What is the Action about? *The Action claims that Facebook
unlawfully used the names, profile pictures, photographs, likenesses, and
identities of Facebook users in the United States to advertise or sell
products and services through Sponsored Stories without obtaining those
users' consent. Facebook denies any wrongdoing and any liability
whatsoever. No court or other entity has made any judgment or other
determination of any liability. *What is a Sponsored Story? *Sponsored
Stories are a form of advertising that typically contains posts which
appeared on about or from a Facebook user or entity that a
business, organization, or individual has paid to promote so there is a
better chance that the posts will be seen by the user or entity's chosen
audience. Sponsored Stories may be displayed, for example, when a Facebook
user interacts with the Facebook service (including sub-domains,
international versions, widgets, plug-ins, platform applications or games,
and mobile applications) in certain ways, such as by clicking on the
Facebook "Like" button on a business's, organization's, or individual's
Facebook page. Sponsored Stories typically include a display of a Facebook
user's Facebook name (i.e., the name the user has associated with his or
her Facebook account) and/or profile picture (if the user has uploaded one)
with a statement describing the user's interaction with the Facebook
service, such as "John Smith likes UNICEF," "John Smith played Farmville,"
or "John Smith shared a link." *What relief does the Settlement
provide? *Facebook
will pay $20 million into a fund that can be used, in part, to pay claims
of Class Members (including Minor Class Members) who appeared in a
Sponsored Story. Each participating Class Member who submits a valid and
timely claim form may be eligible to receive up to $10.* The amount, if
any, paid to each claimant depends upon the number of claims made and other
factors detailed in the Settlement. No one knows in advance how much each
claimant will receive, or whether any money will be paid directly to
claimants. *If the number of claims made renders it economically infeasible
to pay money to persons who make a timely and valid claim, payment will be
made to the not-for-profit organizations identified on the Settlement
website at (if clicking on the link does
not work, copy and paste the website address into a web browser). These
organizations are involved in educational outreach that teaches adults and
children how to use social media technologies safely, or are involved in
research of social media, with a focus on critical thinking around
advertising and commercialization, and particularly with protecting the
interests of children. In addition to monetary relief, Facebook will (a)
revise its terms of service (known as the "Statement of Rights and
Responsibilities" or "SRR") to more fully explain the instances in which
users agree to the display of their names and profile pictures in
connection with Sponsored Stories; (b) create an easily accessible
mechanism that enables users to view, on a going-forward basis, the subset
of their interactions and other content on Facebook that have been
displayed in Sponsored Stories (if any); (c) develop settings that will
allow users to prevent particular items or categories of content or
information related to them from being displayed in future Sponsored
Stories; (d) revise its SRR to confirm that minors represent that their
parent or legal guardian consents to the use of the minor's name and
profile picture in connection with commercial, sponsored, or related
content; (e) provide parents and legal guardians with additional
information about how advertising works on Facebook in its Family Safety
Center and provide parents and legal guardians with additional tools to
control whether their children's names and profile pictures are displayed
in connection with Sponsored Stories; and (f) add a control in minor users'
profiles that enables each minor user to indicate that his or her parents
are not Facebook users and, where a minor user indicates that his or her
parents are not on Facebook, Facebook will make the minor ineligible to
appear in Sponsored Stories until he or she reaches the age of 18, until
the minor changes his or her setting to indicate that his or her parents
are on Facebook, or until a confirmed parental relationship with the minor
