Facebook abuses users, lies for money.

A giant ad took over my Facebook feed today. It said my niece "Liked" AT&T, and the ad hawked deals on BlackBerry phones through AT&T. 

Why would a 14-year-old girl who doesn't live in the United States "Like" AT&T? 

I asked her, and learned that of course she never did. (Nor did she even know that Facebook was telling people she endorsed AT&T with a "Like.")

How is it even legal for Facebook to use a minor's picture and name without their or their parent's permission or even knowledge to make money in an ad and lie about that person, saying that they endorse a product that they never used, liked or approved of in any way? 

Has anything like this happened to YOU on Facebook?
