Facebook sending out emails for 'Sponsored Stories' class-action lawsuit

Facebook users who are part of a class-action lawsuit are going to start receiving emails related to the case.

The email says people who are a part of the lawsuit have until May 2 to submit a claim. The suit is against the company's use of users' photos in 'Sponsored Stories', which are ads that turn your 'likes' into endorsements for a company or brand and then pop up in your friends' newsfeeds.

According to the blog, ' Mashable ',  the lawsuit argues the ads are a violation of privacy. Last month, a judge issued preliminary approval on a $20 million settlement.
