    Facebook Sponsored Stories

    One of Facebook's many ad products was Sponsored Stories. If one of your friends liked or commented about a business, that business could use his comment and image for a sponsored ad.

    However, users weren't asked for permission before their images were used, which resulted in a lawsuit and a $20 million settlement.

    Now, when businesses post ads on Facebook, you can see which of your friends has "liked" a certain product's page.

    The network eliminated the Sponsored Stories program all together in April, 2014.
