Facebook Offers $10 Million to Settle Sponsored Stories Lawsuit

Facebook has offered to settle a lawsuit brought against it by five different users of the social network. The users sued Facebook because their faces were used as part of Facebook's sponsored stories advertisements. Facebook has maintained that it believe the lawsuit to be frivolous, but the company is now prepared to pay.

Facebook has offered to settle the suit with the five people for $10 million. The catch is the $10 million would go to charity with the people suing Facebook getting nothing. The settlement hasn't been approved yet and still needs to go before the judge.
