Not content with monitoring the movements of its own users, the largest social network in the world is building secret files on the activities of billions of people.

Mark Zuckerburg's company says that is uses this information to target adverts and content based on your preferences, as well as for security purposes.

Facebook account holders are able to download a copy of the file kept on them, which contains detailed records of their activities while logged in.

The privacy of users tracked via-third parties is currently less transparent, with no way of checking exactly what Facebook knows about you.

Prominent pro-life advocate Bryan Kemper is questioning Facebook after it removed his pro-life message, a move that followed on the heels of the company’s decision to allow the posting of directions on how to perform an abortion at home.

I don't know about a lawsuit (although we do need to have some sort of a right to privacy amendment), but I do not like the new FaceBook! Just my .02 cents

Five Facebook Inc. users Monday sued the social-networking site in California's Orange County Superior Court, alleging that the social networking site violates several state laws aimed at protecting consumers' privacy.

The complaint accuses Facebook, of Palo Alto, of failing to compensate its users for harvesting their personal data and for violating laws that protect consumers from having information they upload to the site shared with third parties, such as advertisers.

"Plaintiffs and the general public desire and expect a level of privacy, which Facebook has failed to satisfy under its current policies, procedures, practices, and technology," the complaint states. The plaintiffs, which include a photographer, an actress, and some middle school and college students, are demanding damages and attorney's fees and requesting a jury trial.

In a statement, Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said the company sees "no merit to this suit and we plan to fight it."

The suit comes as Canadian privacy authorities are pressuring Facebook to enhance its privacy policy through measures such as making it easier for users to permanently delete their account. Mr. Schnitt also said in a statement that Facebook is in the process of responding to their concerns, which the Canadian privacy commissioner publicized earlier this summer.

The attacks are prompting Facebook to revise and clarify how it handles its users' data--particularly what it shares it with third parties, such as advertisers and software developers who build software for the site. Facebook has said it discloses what it shares with whom, but there are some grey areas.

Earlier this year, a change to the company's terms of service triggered a wave of concerns that Facebook was claiming ownership of its users' data. Facebook later clarified that it does not claim ownership over users' data and submitted future changes to its terms of service to review by its users.
