Investors should not worry about lawsuit

Recently, a lawsuit was filed against Facebook accusing the social networker of misusing the personal data. In a short span, the class action lawsuit has gained support of over 17,000 individuals. However, according to a report from Silicon Valley Business journal, investors should not be really worried about this case as this is not the first time when Facebook has gotten into such legal tussle. The social networking site has been accused of collecting data for advertisers, sharing the data with national Security Agency through its PRISM program and conducting mood swing studies on the users.
