LinkedIn Users Took The Website To Court And Each May Be Awarded $1,500 For This Reason
A class-action lawsuit against LinkedIn was settled for $13 million on behalf of users, and it has to do with their promotional strategyâ€¦I guess that's what you'd call it.
And as you could've guessed, theyÂ sent an emailÂ about this whole thing.
If the person did not respond to the initial invitation, LinkedIn would then send follow up emails about pending invitations, and the court decided these were done without users' consent. Of course, LinkedIn denied any wrongdoing.
If you do file a claim, which can be doneÂ here, you'll be receivingâ€“you guessed itâ€“an email from LinkedIn to confirm. Looks like things will never change, really, but maybe you can get some money out of them.
REMINDER: You need to file before Dec. 14, 2015, and the final approval will be determined on Feb. 11, 2016.
