"Targeted advertising" is again the name of the game in another class action lawsuit against social media giant Facebook.
U.S. District Court Judge Phyllis Hamilton in Oakland ruled the suit could go forward Tuesday.
Facebook users Matthew Campbell and Michael Hurley filed the lawsuit in late 2013 over privacy concerns, saying that Facebook has allegedly scanned the content of private messages between users for links to business websites.
