Thanks to Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws and recent fine of $1.3B, Meta will need to change the product and how they do business which will benefit us all as I don't think Meta will want to maintain multiple products, one for the EU and one for everyone else given most tech companies don't even want to support more than 2 previous product releases fircingeveryone to upgrade software versions fr applications ad system software.
But just in case Meta or other tech companies drag their feet on this, the US should have similar regulations, similar to how the FDA has harmonized drug laws with Europe and rest of the world.

So can anyone of 5he Causes readers or staff explain in layman's terms "General Data Protection Regulation"? Yet you want to get people's opinion......do readers understand why your polling? Why you polls are always push polls? Do they know what a push poll is?

What a surprise! Meta (formerly Facebook) is guilty of once again misusing customer data!
I support fines for any corporate negligence or abuse of data, so I'm glad to see this.
It's time for these tech companies to take data privacy seriously and make plans to comply with GDPR or any other applicable regulations in other countries. I hope our goverment will also finally put more protections in place before Meta sells us out to the highest bidder.

The only reason that the US does not have privacy protections is that corporations own lawmakers. This subversion of democracy needs to be stopped.

In the U.S. we only seem to protect the exploiter class. We need better regulation.

There are so many critical areas where the USA lags Europe! This is a critical area! The social media companies are only concerned about one thing: expanding their bottom line!! They are doing that by reckless disregard of all the personal information that is on their sites. This data should be treated with the same regard as our most vital national security secrets!! We need laws and regulations to protect this information!!

Europe is doing it right with their laws that put guardrails in place when it comes to social media. We need to do the same. Protection of the users should be a priority and without regulations the social media companies will ignore people's rights and put profit above people.
