Source: Hacker News


Facebook is once again in trouble regarding its users' privacy.

The social media giant has recently been heavily fined once again for a series of privacy violations in Spain.

Recently, Google also incurred a record-breaking fine of $2.7 billion (€2.42 billion) by the European antitrust officials for unfairly manipulating search results since at least 2008.

Now, the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) has issued a €1.2 Million (nearly $1.4 Million) fine against Facebook for breaching laws designed to protect its people's information and confidentiality.
