Facebook accused of spying on Belgian citizens like the NSA

The Belgian Privacy Commission (BPC) brought a lawsuit against Facebook after accusing it of not complying with Belgian and European privacy law. In a report and an opinion the BPC detailed Facebook’s alleged breaches, including the tracking of non-users and logged-out Facebook users for advertising purposes.

The BPC is threatening Facebook with fine of €250,000 ($280,213) a day for failing to respond to its demands.
