Lawyers Sue Facebook For Letting Kids Like Advertisements



Companies legally spend billions of dollars on advertisements that they hope kids will like. If kids like the ads enough, they may even tell their friends, and the best ads, like Verizon's "Can you hear me now?" commercials, become memes.

But fear not, the trial bar will rescue modern civilization from this disturbing trend by suing deep-pocketed Faceboook for allowing kids to use the software's "like" feature to express their approval of ads they find on the site. Next up: a lawsuit against pizza delivery companies for allowing teens to wear their t-shirts ironically?
