LinkedIn to pay $13 million for those unwanted emails

LinkedIn has to pay up for sending users too many unwanted e-mails.

The social networking site has agreed to shell out $13 million to settle a 2013 lawsuit linked to the site's "Add Connections" feature.

Some LinkedIn members were upset that address book contacts they'd requested to connect with had received multiple reminder e-mails.

The settlement affects those who used the feature between September 17, 2011 and October 31, 2014.

You have until December 14 to submit a claim form to be included.

Customers can get up to $1,500 each.
