Facebook, Apple, Twitter and LinkedIn face investigations for violating European privacy laws

Facebook is facing 10 probes related to user privacy across its platforms.

On Saturday March 2, 2019, Abc News at YouTube wrote:
Facebook currently faces 10 investigations into whether the company — including its WhatsApp and Instagram platforms — violated new European privacy laws, which are stricter than their U.S.

In December the company announced a software bug that exposed the photos of nearly seven million users to third-party apps without user consent.

Three of the potential GDPR violations are related to the September breach, which the company self-reported to the DPC, according to the report. Facebook and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
