USA: Court accepts collective complaint against Facebook

Thus, collective lawsuits against the controversial face recognition application.

A court in San Francisco has accepted a collective complaint against Facebook for registering unauthorized biometric data.

The court, which assessed the application for collective complaints, opened the case for collective action, justifying the justification for complaint on Monday.


As a justification for the judge's decision, he showed that collective complaints were the most effective way to resolve the dispute on controversial face recognition practice.

Facebook users from the US state of Illinois were found in a collective opinion, suggesting that the company intervened in private life without the consent of the users.


Social media giant Facebook says that users are not the source of complaints. Facial identification allows you to search with photos of people on the internet.


Mark Zuckerberg's founder and chairman of the board is under great pressure from the recent period of Facebook. Zuckerberg made statements at the US Congress last week about the scandal of unauthorized sharing of user information.


Zuckerberg stated that Facebook was responsible for the mistakes Facebook had made as its founder. He also acknowledged that the company has not done enough to prevent misuse of social media, including false news, election interventions, hate speech, and data confidentiality.


It turned out that an analyst firm, Cambridge Analytica, has developed for Facebook an unauthorized access to data from close to 87 million users.
