Herald News Service reports:

Facebook Inc., the social-networking site, was sued for not getting permission to display notices that minors “like” Facebook advertisers’ products.

The lawsuit seeks classaction status on behalf of Facebook users in New York state under the age of 18 who had “their names or likenesses used on a Facebook feed or in an advertisement sold by Facebook Inc. without the consent of their parent or guardian.”

The suit was filed Monday in federal court in Brooklyn.
