Facebook is being sued over allegations that it scans people’s private messages and profits by sharing the data with advertisers and marketers.

Bloomberg.com reported that the suit claims Facebook scans private messages that include links to a third-party website, follows the link and searches for information to profile the message-sender’s web activity.

Facebook is violating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and California privacy and unfair competition laws, according to the suit filed in federal court in San Jose, California.

The case is Matthew Campbell v. Facebook Inc., 13-5996, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).

Facebook spokesperson Jackie Rooney told Bloomberg that the allegations are “without merit.”
