If tomorrow the law of the European Union, which does not allow companies to collect data about people online without their consent, will enter into force, nearly 1.9 billion users of Facebook around the world will come under his protection.
The previously unreported move, which Facebook confirmed to Reuters on Tuesday, shows the world's largest online social network is keen to reduce its exposure to GDPR, which allows European regulators to fine companies for collecting or using personal data without users' consent. Over the past several months, Facebook has given a few answers to that question. Soon, Facebook will change it so that only European users will fall under GDPR. As of December, Facebook had 239 million users in the United States and Canada, 370 million in Europe and 1.52 billion users elsewhere. The unit is subject to regulations applied by the 28-nation European Union.
