Correction: Last month, we called Zuckerberg a moron. We apologize. In fact, he and Facebook are a fscking disgrace

So what ??

My comment is mainly addressed to the US authority and citizens.

What controlling power have the US citizens ? None I understand looking to the last sequel of scandals and revelations over FB.

I do not know if EU citizens are involved, GDPR will take care of them eventually.

All in all.... if regulatory power does not hit the GAFA hard, very hard, any other petty punishment will always be accrued under "Product R&D"

N'est ce pas ? ( for the record, I am not French)

Thank you FB !! (irony head !)

Quote "Those profiles have been built by customers who have paid between $79 and $199 to have their generic material analyzed, in large part to understand their personal history and sometimes find connections to unknown family members.

(Irony ahead !!!) I feel almost grateful to FB, Insta. and alike. At least we do not pay them for the exploitation of our data :-)

Only UK employees will bear a loss

Only UK employees will be out of ESA and Galileo projects not the " Brits shareholders of EU based companies"that deal with Galileo contracts .

EU-Secrete clearance (like UK DV) will not be granted to UK citizens any longer but this does not impact the revenue of "UK shareholders of EU based companies".

Of course the real work will be done by the EU based (and EU citizen) employees so once again the UK "low paid' ( compared to the reach UK company owners) will feel the Brexit pain.

Wasn't this explained at Brexit campaign time ? ( irony ahead)

It is called "delocalization" :-)
