In other news, Facebook Inc is set to pay over $500 million or GHc5,510,424,000 in a bid to settle a class action lawsuit, YEN.com.gh has learnt.

Information available shows that the move is an attempt to deal with accusations of a systematic violation of an Illinois consumer privacy law.

Per a report by techcrunch.com, the amount forms a small fraction of the maximum amount of $35 billion Facebook could have paid.

The class members, primarily based in Illinois, are people who used Facebook between mid-2011 to mid-2015.

It is believed that they may expect to receive about $200 each but this depends on a number of factors.

As part of the settlement, Facebook would in future require permission before it obtains consent for purposes such as face analysis for automatic tagging.
