Meta Fined €390m for Privacy Law Breaches in the EU

An example of S factors (product responsibility and customer privacy rights) in action in Tech companies.


  • European Union regulators on Wednesday hit Facebook parent Meta with hundreds of millions in fines for privacy violations and banned the company from forcing users in the 27-nation bloc to agree to personalised ads based on their online activity.

  • When GDPR came into force, the company changed the legal basis under which it processes user data by adding a clause to the terms of service for advertisements, effectively forcing users to agree that their data could be used. That violates EU privacy rules.
