#Facebook Lost Belgium Privacy Lawsuit Last Month

A district court in Belgium ruled that Facebook is indeed violating EU’s privacy laws with its “shadow tracking” of users across the web.

Facebook has for years said that the datr cookie wasn’t meant to track users across the web, and when it got caught twice doing it anyway, the company said it was only a bug and that it would be fixed.

Note this behavior – do wrong stuff, say you fixed it, but continue doing it anyway, is par for the course for Facebook.
