The lawsuit — known as "Facebook Internet Tracking Litigation" — accuses Facebook of "improperly obtaining and collecting data" through non-Facebook websites that displayed a Facebook "Like" button.
Facebook has denied any wrongdoing but is still choosing to settle the matter without going to trial.
Persons who, between April 22, 2010, and Sept. 26, 2011, inclusive, were Facebook users in the United States who visited non-Facebook websites that displayed the Facebook Like button.
You qualify if you were a Facebook user in the United States from April 22, 2010, through September 26, 2011, and you visited any non-Facebook website that displayed the Facebook "Like" button.

Entering their usernames will increase the chances of the settlement administrator finding their accounts; if the class members cannot remember their usernames, the administrator will try to find their accounts based on the other information provided on the claim forms.
