Facebook starts to roll out GDPR notifications and consent requests
April 18, 2018 / Greg Sterling
Facebook previously announced that it would apply General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) privacy protections and rules globally to all its users. This was a major decision — partly practical, partly principled and partly public relations. Yesterday, the company began to explain how it will start implementation of the new guidelines. Starting in Europe, Facebook will ask users to make decisions about what data on their profiles is to be shared and what data can be used to show them ads.
