Canada Fines Facebook Almost $6.5 Million Over ‘False’ Data Privacy Claims

Here is still another article about Facebook claiming to offer privacy when, in fact, the company steals, saves, and resells the private information of all its users. According to Canada’s independent Competition Bureau, Facebook “made false or misleading claims about the privacy of Canadians’ personal information on Facebook and Messenger” and improperly shared data with third-party developers.

According to the article, Facebook said it “did not agree” with the finding, but wanted to resolve the matter quickly. So Facebook paid $6.5 million to save time and get rid of this legal problem quickly, all without admitting to being guilty?

This article is about the government of Canada’s legal actions against Facebook but the invasion of privacy apparently happens to all Facebook users in all countries: https://www.engadget.com/canada-fines-facebook-almost-65-million-over-false-data-privacy-claims-000524114.html
