Are your private messages on Facebook really private? A class action lawsuit filed this week against Facebook claims the social media giant scans private messages for data to sell for profit to third party companies. The lawsuit also alleges Facebook "hides the extent of this intrusive behavior from its users."

Facebook has responded to the lawsuit saying the allegations have no merit. 

Last year, Facebook settled another privacy lawsuit over targeted advertising for $20 million.
