The Irish online privacy group Digital Rights Ireland is planning to lead a mass legal against Facebook, seeking compensation for users for the publication of their personal information online.

The names, phone numbers, email addresses, location data and biographical information of up to 533 million Facebook users was recently dumped for free on an online hacking forum.
