UK Data Watchdog Asks EU Regulator to Probe Facebook

UK’s Information Commissioner has reportedly asked Ireland’s Data Protection Commission to investigate how Facebook targets, shows, and monitors the ads it serves to users, saying that there were fake political ads being shown on the platform.


The lead supervisor for Facebook in Europe said that it would assess the information and decide what actions should be taken.


Meanwhile, Facebook said that it regularly engages with regulators on its advertising tools which it says are compliant with EU’s GDPR.
