Facebook can probably recognize that its users' faces are angry.
Facebook has stated that they are reviewing the ruling saying, "We continue to believe the case has no merit and will defend ourselves vigorously".
June 2011 was the date on which Facebook rolled out its "tag suggestions" feature.
"Consequently, the case will proceed with a class consisting of Facebook users located in IL for whom Facebook created and stored a face template after June 7, 2011", Donato said.
A federal judge has ruled that a class action lawsuit including millions of Facebook users can proceed with their claims that the social media firm violated an IL law relating to the collection and storage of biometric data without users consent, according to Bloomberg. The judge also noted that there is enough evidence to suggest that Facebook violated the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), enacted in 2008, which forbids companies from profiting from a person's biometric information.

Also on Monday, Facebook confirmed that it collected information from people beyond their social network use.
The appearance of the witnesses comes amid controversy about the harvesting of Facebook users data by a third party app and the improper passing of that information to United Kingdom political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
The law in question is called the Biometric Information Privacy Act, which offers users protection over security methods used by websites, including iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scans of hands.
The plaintiffs claim Facebook collects and stores their biometric data without prior notice or consent, the ruling said. The court responded that users' privacy, not wallet or body, was harmed by Facebook's tactics.
