    2 Attachment(s) European Union anti-trust regulators fined Facebook (FB.O) 1-10 million euros ($122 million) on Thursday for providing misleading information in a vetting of its own deal to to get messaging support whats app in 2014.

    Calling it a proportionate and deterrent great, the European Commission, which functions as the EU's competition watchdog, said Facebook had mentioned it couldn't instantly match user accounts on its namesake platform and whats app but two years later released something that did precisely that.

    The Commission has identified that, opposite to Facebook's statements in the 2014 merger evaluation procedure, the technical possibility of automatically matching Facebook and whats app consumers' identities currently existed in 2014, which Facebook personnel were conscious of this type of possibility, the Commission stated.

    And the EU needed to pity Facebook for every one of these information infringement with which several social networks are participating in with that tiny sum?

    Facebook isn't getting people's privacy seriously in almost any way they need to be fined more on that, how can they request conserve a users password on their browsers platforms?

    In this contemporary data-driven economy which a lota people r delving in to where every thing is hi tech make no sense and certainly will only lead several to nowhere other that their self pluted evils. People are having to use applications that impact their lives beyond the so-called social sphere. People are compelled to to stay the circle of individuals they might not actually require to be in connection with. You see updates and advertisements from all possible kinds of shits that are crazy just to force you to start typing your card particulars to ecomerce web sites that got actually no products that are sensible to provide you. Guide their selves on each one of these networks and Cooperations and governments just need to step up. Like in my own country some workplaces do perhaps not permit Facebook on their networks so long as work hrs are worried.
    America is no-joke a T all-they know know what info all of the silicon valley's organizations buy about them from throughout the planet in name of one useless application or the other.
    I am largely maybe not interested in them as these dudes are spies. EU is intelligent but I am extremely positive Facebook is a good joke as America do not actually give a fuck they want, properly mentioned an anticipate the entire world to be cry-babies for them.

    The EU great is certain with their misleading the EU competition authority with regards to their clearance of the Whatsapp teakover/merger. The EU has as recently as March, cautioned Facebook, Google and Twitter about the diverse problem of their their non-compliance with EU consumer-protection regulations.

    At least the EU ARE AT LEAST doing something to redress the problem.
