Facebook to get $711 m compensation

The court has asked the spammer, Sanford Wallace, to pay the amount to compensate damages done to the networking site.

“A San Jose, California court awarded Facebook $ 711 million in damages against Sanford Wallace, one of the spammers who accessed people’s accounts without their permission and phony wall posts and messages,” the networking site said in a blog.

Noting that the ruling would act as a continued deterrent against such criminals, Facebook, however, said it does not expect to get much money from Wallace.
