Facebook $725m settlement fund opens to US claims
US Facebook users can now apply for their share of a $725m privacy-case settlement. Meta, which owns Facebook, has denied any wrongdoing but agreed to the settlement. The deadline to claim is 25 August - but anyone wanting to object to the settlement or retain their right to take separate legal action against Meta by opting out must do so by 26 July. The net settlement amount will then be divided by the total number of points, to determine how much money will be paid for each. Technology author James Ball told BBC News that Meta executives would be relatively pleased with this settlement.
