Facebook’s service policy continues to be questioned due to privacy concerns. The dispute between Facebook and EU officials continues.
EU officials continue to meet with Facebook
Many countries want their citizens’ data to remain within the country. In fact, this was why there was tension between TikTok and the USA and it was what the US administration said.
A similar situation is happening this time between Facebook and EU officials. The European Union privacy regulator has called for a suspension of sending data from EU users to the US. It was requested to keep these user data in Europe and to restrict data sharing. In this increasingly complex process, the dispute between Facebook and the EU continues.
Yvonne Cunnane, who serves as Facebook’s head of data protection in Ireland, says it’s unclear how Facebook and Instagram can continue to provide services in the EU under these circumstances. Instagram and Facebook, which have 410 million users in total in the EU, maybe in a very difficult situation with the new regulation. With the imposition of the obligation to establish data centers in Europe and the total restriction of data sharing, Facebook is already wondering what strategy will it follow.
