Meta has received the largest fine for a GDPR breach ever seen - £1 billion - for the way it’s been handling European users' data.

The DPC ruled that transferring European users’ Facebook data to the US created “risks to the fundamental rights and freedoms” of citizens in light of the widespread domestic spying uncovered by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Considering that monopoly that is Facebook is prone to covertly assembling a dossier of your online behaviour even whilst you’re not using it - even if you never signed up to it - what they do with your data is a fairly critical issue.
