SOCIAL NETWORK Facebook has proposed settlement payments in the privacy case involving its Sponsored Stories feature.
This offer was declined by a judge because it offered no respite, read cash, for Facebook users.
Facebook is looking to remedy this with an offer that will allow users to apply for a $10 payment.
"We believe the revised settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and responds to the issues raised previously by the court," said a Facebook spokesman.
The lawsuit began in 2011 when five users complained that their images had been used in Facebook's "sponsored stories" without their permission. .
US District Court Judge Lucy Koh agreed with their complaint, saying that sort of thing does not fly under California privacy rules.
"California has long recognised a right to protect one's name and likeness against appropriation by others for their advantage," she wrote. µ
