Advocacy group Fair Vote UK is assembling a class action lawsuit against Facebook over its mishandling of people's information. According to Business Insider, Fair Vote has 84 claimants so far, but 1.1 million British citizens were affected by the breach overall. The news comes after the UK's privacy watchdog said it planned to fine Facebook £500,000 for breaking data protection laws. Data protection lawyer Sean Humber says that Facebook could potentially face a bill running into the hundreds of millions of pounds, or even higher depending on how seriously the data was misused.
