Your Face Could Net You $200. Are You on Facebook?

Keep an eye on your mail box…  Facebook could be sending you $200 for your face!

It’s true, if you use Facebook, and you live in Illinois, that check could be on it’s way.

Why?  Facebook has settled a 5-year-old class-action lawsuit, over their facial recognition tagging feature.

Because Illinois has one of the strictest bio-metric privacy laws in the nation; the feature has violated Illinois state law, which protects our bio-metric information.  That can include data from facial, fingerprint and iris scans.  According to the Tribune, if you’re eligible to claim a portion of the settlement, you will be notified.
