Europe Threatens Sanctions Against Facebook
Europe Threatens sanctions against Facebook for not Complying with Consumer Law. Facebook overlooks sanctions of the European Union because the company does not yet comply with European consumer legislation.
That’s what anonymous sources state, according to reports.
The user conditions of the social medium still do not meet the requirements that Europe sets for online platforms.
Brussels monitors the user conditions of online platforms such as Facebook.
Must comply with European consumer legislation, online platforms must ensure that their user provisions are written down.
They must also answer within a few days to submissions from the European market authorities.
EU Commissioner Vera Jourova (Justice and Consumer Rights) said in February that it was “unacceptable” that Facebook at the time still did not comply with European rules.
Since then, nothing has changed.
Europe has also tapped Airbnb, but that company would now keep to the European rules.
The rental site had to indicate, with other things, whether a private individual or a professional rent a home.
The company also had to make the prices for rental more transparent.
