The five plaintiffs are described as two children younger than 13, a user of the original Facebook, a professional photographer, and an actress and model. The 40-page complaint accuses the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company of violating California privacy and online privacy laws by disseminating private information to third parties for commercial purposes.
