Facebook under investigation by the EU over ambiguous WhatsApp data

By in

US based social network giant Facebook is set to be penalised by EU trust regulators for supposedly providing misleading data relating to the acquisition of communication app WhatsApp three years ago, a person close to the case stated on Wednesday. The ruling will be made by the EC following a six-month long investigation and is expected to be a stiff warning to other companies facing similar issues. Both the EU Executive and Facebook declined to make a statement about the case.
