I see money in your future… especially, if you are a Facebook user and have been for some time…

In case you didn’t know, Facebook has a class action lawsuit against them and the judge has tentatively approved the $725 million settlement.

The best part about that is, you get to get your chunk of that money!

According to reports, Meta agreed to the payment to settle a lawsuit claiming Facebook allowed users’ personal data to be shared with third parties.

One of the most famous of those being Cambridge Analytica, a consulting firm that supported Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

According to the Associated Press, that firm harvested the data of as many as 87 million Facebook users. YIKES!

With that being said, you can check to see if you are eligible for payment from this settlement (and you likely are).

The final approval of the settlement isn’t expected until September, but you can file your claim now.

Who qualifies for a payment?

Anyone who was a Facebook user between May 24, 2007, and Dec. 22, 2022, is eligible, per the settlement page.

If you were a Facebook user in the United States between May 24, 2007, and December 22, 2022, inclusive, you may be eligible for a cash payment from a Class Action Settlement.

And my guess is, you were a Facebook user between that time, right?

If so, you will need to file your claim by August 25, 2023 in order to receive payment.

And for those wondering, yes, you will receive a payment. However, the amount depends on how many people file a claim.

With the TikTok lawsuit a few years back, I received about $80 via PayPal when it was settled. Not too shabby.

Head to this website and click the button that says “submit a claim online” and fill out the form.

Then just watch for some random amount of money to arrive to you sometime this year.
