Facebook privacy class action suit to kick off in April

Loek Essers | Jan. 27, 2015
An Austrian court has set a date for Facebook to face a class action complaint about its privacy policy from 25,000 of its users.

If Facebook constantly keeps track of its users to determine how they react to online deals, there is a "great danger" that they will become predictable and can be manipulated, Ulrich Kelber, Secretary of State of the ministry of justice, told Tagesspiegel.

Kelber also criticized the way Facebook is forcing its users to accept the new policy. If a user logs on to the social network on Friday, they automatically accept the changes which basically gives users only one choice, everything or nothing, Kelber noted.
