GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the largest social media companies on the Internet will pay its users to settle a lawsuit over spam.

LinkedIn has agreed to shell out $13 million to settle the 2013 suit regarding the site’s “add connections” feature. Some site members were upset that address book contacts they had requested to connect with had received multiple reminder emails.

The settlement affects those who used the feature between September of 2011 and October of 2014. Customers can get up to $1,500 each.

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