(PC Magazine) Facebook will surely be bracing itself for some fresh backlash from the public next week following a number of revealing legal documents being unsealed. Those documents are expected to detail how Facebook made money off children without ongoing and clear consent from a parent or guardian.
The documents are being unsealed thanks to the work of Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting. They form part of a 2012 class action lawsuit which was filed by two children through their parents. It represented a class of children who were all under 18, Facebook users, and who had purchased Facebook Credits on their accounts.
