LinkedIn to pay massive fine for annoying emails
LinkedIn - the most annoying social media platform on the planet - looks like they're going to have to cough up some clams thanks to their insistent and annoying emails. LinkedIn have agreed to pay $13 million to users over their Add Connections feature.
A court found that users didn't consent to the additional reminder emails, which were sent after the original connection requests. Thanks to this, those users with accounts between September 2011 and October 2014 are likely to at least qualify for a payout.
Of course, this won't stop LinkedIn sending everyone a million emails a week and being more needy than a recently dumped emo.
They released a statement:
Get all that? Anyway, the actual settlement hasn't been approved by the court as of yet, but if you want more information on this lawsuit and want to file a claim, you need to do it by December 14th and you should click here.
