What Facebook is changing about your privacy settings

Though users in those territories previously agreed to TOS dictated by the company's corporate entity in the European Union nation of Ireland, now they must legally agree to be bound by the US-based corporation's terms. On Thursday, it emerged that Facebook was moving 1.5 billion global user accounts out of reach of the new privacy law, which is scheduled to go into effect on May 25.
Earlier this week, Facebook outlined new privacy settings to bring it in line with the GDPR, insisting that the new law "was an opportunity to invest even more heavily in privacy" and that it was going to go "beyond our obligations to build new and improved privacy experiences for everyone on Facebook". That means when the strict data rules under the E.U.'s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) role around next month, Facebook would have to protect almost 1.9 billion users, including those in Africa, Asia, Australia, and Latin America.
While the move is being seen as the social networking behemoth's hedge against the impending stringent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in the European Union on May 25, Facebook claimed that it is "offering everyone who uses Facebook the same privacy protections, controls and settings, no matter where they live".
The change affects more than 70 percent of Facebook's 2 billion-plus members.
Facebook, like many other USA technology companies, established an Irish subsidiary in 2008 and took advantage of the country's low corporate tax rates, routing through it revenue from some advertisers outside North America. As of December, Facebook had 239 million users in the United States and Canada, 370 million in Europe and 1.52 billion users elsewhere. As reported by Reuters, the social network will change its policies next month so it's no longer responsible for the 1.5 billion non-European users who were covered under its previous arrangement.
When asked the same question a few weeks later by lawmakers in the US Congress, Zuckerberg appeared to say that Facebook would extend GDPR to all users but commentators noticed that he used the terms "controls" rather than "protections".
Facebook will have more leeway in how it handles data about those users, Veale said. But Facebook doesn't want that to happen and is trying to prevent that by changing its terms of service for those users so that they will fall under US privacy laws instead. India is yet to adopt a data protection law. The tech company may have found a new batch of trouble. LinkedIn, a unit of Microsoft Corp, tells users in its existing terms of service that if they are outside the United States, they have a contract with LinkedIn Ireland.
