Funny timing on these lawsuits and bad press Facebook is receiving at the last minute, just as its IPO is launching. Greed, financial interest and opportunity....

The timing on this class action suit is suspect to say the least. IDK how the previous cases were ruled on, but if FB was aquitted then this case will also fall by the wayside. Once again I will state, you have no privacy on the internet. Someone somewhere is logging everything you do. From the sites you visit to what you write. Untill ppl learn this simple truth we will continue to see frivilous lawsuits like this.

Further proof that besides being a complete waste of time and energy, Facebook and all those other so called "social media" are a dangerous place to be.

How is it that people think that it is critical that they share every single aspect of their lives the moment it happens? I don't need to know that you just burped or passed gas.

Pick up a phone, write a letter. It's much safer.
