"It's about beginning to question the types of information they have about you, beginning to question the transparency of the data that you share across all platforms, not just Facebook". On Tuesday the company has offered a public explanation.

Castor asked Zuckerberg two yes-or-no questions that he was forced to admit to: that Facebook collects data on non-Facebook users on every website that has a "like" or "share" button.
If Congress creates new laws that make it hard to compete in this industry, it will certainly make it harder and more expensive for competition to enter the arena, as Facebook already has the lawyers and billions of dollars to compete.

Companies that don't comply with the EU's rules face a hefty fine - either 4 percent of an entity's annual total revenue or 20 million Euros, whichever is greater.
Some companies, such as Apple, have already made a virtue out of how prepared they are and Facebook is being urged to extend any GDPR practices it has on a global basis, not just within the European Union, because a huge proportion of its 2.2bn users live in countries that don't exactly have benevolent regimes.
