Default Opting out of the Facebook class actions

I want to opt out of any facebook class action and file my own suit.

How do I opt out, and make sure that I opt out of ANY class suit that purports to cover me?

Is there one central place for that where I can see all suits that may apply to me?

Thanks!

I wish to inform you that when class action lawsuit was filed at that time you will receive a notice providing information about class action law suit. You may opt out of class action by completing opt out of class action law suit. You may alternatively contact the attorney handling class action law suit and obtain papers of opt out of lawsuit. If deadline to opt out has passed then you may seek court permission to opt out of lawsuit.

I just filed in small claims court against them in California.

Seems like it was easy to do.
We will see how the actual case goes.

Every class action lawsuit I was ever a class member of required me to "opt in" if I wanted a share of the settlement.

I think all you have to do is file your own lawsuit and you're automatically eliminated from the class.

Just understand that almost ever class action is settled out of court without an admission of wrongdoing.

That means you have to prove your case with your own evidence and anything relating to the class action won't be admissible.

It seems to me that Google is the big tech firm the gov should really be after.

If you have ever dealt with Google's customer service dept you know it is worse than any monopoly has ever been in history!

And with adwords and the web advertising set such as it is, there really isn't much choice.

If you do not sue yourself you will get basically nothing in a class action.
I never saw one class action that paid the consumer more than a token amount.

You can act according to the instructions included in the class action notice regarding opting out. But you should inform the lawyer who is handling the class action that you are opting out from the class action.
