Facebook, LinkedIn Sued For ‘Eavesdropping’ On Zoom Users

Facebook and LinkedIn have been secretly harvesting personal information from Zoom users to boost their revenues, according to a putative class action filed in California federal court Monday that targets both the social media sites and the newly ubiquitous video conferencing platform.

The newly filed lawsuit echoes many of these allegations against Zoom, while also drawing in social media giants Facebook Inc. and LinkedIn Corp., which plaintiff Todd Hurvitz claims “eavesdropped” on what Zoom users thought were private communications between them and the company’s servers in order to scoop up valuable personal information.
