Facebook Accused of Providing Misleading Information over WhatsApp

The European commission charged Facebook with providing “misleading” information before acquisition of WhatsApp following its data-sharing change this past summer.


It must be clarified that the charges won’t influence the approval of the merger and are being treated separately to other EC cases against the social network. However, the industry experts point out that Facebook could be fined up to 1% of its 2014 global turnover, which was greater than $10bn.

The European competition commissioner claimed that companies must provide the Commission accurate information about mergers in order to allow it to review them in a timely and effective manner. In Facebook’s case, the commission has a preliminary view that incorrect or misleading information was provided during the investigation into its acquisition of WhatsApp.

The tech giant now has the opportunity to respond regarding its claims that it would not be able to perform automated matching between user-held Facebook accounts and WhatsApp accounts at the time. As you remember, it is exactly what Facebook is now doing. However, the European commission’s review of the merger two years ago revolved around whether the social network would or could merge the two messaging services. This was considered a technically difficult feat, which was made harder with the roll out of WhatsApp’s default end-to-end encryption.

In response, Facebook announced that it was very happy that the European Commission stands by its clearance of Facebook’s WhatsApp acquisition. The social network promised to continue to co-operate with regulators to address their complaints. As usual, Facebook committed to respect the EC process and was confident that the investigation would confirm that the company had acted in good faith.

Facebook’s representatives made an official announcement, assuring that they consistently provided accurate information about the company’s technical capabilities and plans, including about the WhatsApp acquisition and its privacy policy update.

As you may remember, the company had to stop the use of user data shared between WhatsApp and Facebook last month following pressure from the pan-European data protection agency group. As for the current EC charges, Facebook has until 31 January 2017 to respond.

n2kmaster avatar@2 I could fap to that, being someone who's gotten a 2 day ban over posting a facebook link on facebook itself. Apparently the self censorship has already begun over there. Can't wait til the population wakes up and sees that its nothing more than a remake of Myspace and we all know how well they did.......

No avatarFacebook was CIA funded... that's mostly why myspace never had a chance.. A lot of illegal banning but that just violates terms and conditions without consequences. If they change the terms and conditions, they can run algorithms for word searches... not just banning people for fake news but taking people with opinions out of the game. That's horrific. Sadly, it's been done before all that, just can't hide it anymore
