Facebook turns "Like" feature into money maker

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- There are plans by a social networking website to let advertisers get access to some information.

Facebook users could soon find that when they check into a store, or "Like" a certain brand, those actions could end up on their friends' pages.

The info would be shared as a "sponsored story," paid for by advertisers.

Some watchdogs say this is a way for Facebook to make money without users' consent.

There currently is no way to opt out of the feature.
