There's a huge financial difference between a few subject requests from the various TLA's and, potentially, millions of data subjects for Facebook. Then the question for them becomes, which would you rather pay? More for infrastructure to comply or 4% of turnover for the rest of the firms existence? Now that's an interesting economic calculation in the realm of game theory right there!
