Hungary fined $ 4 million on Facebook

The Hungarian competition agency fined the popular social network Facebook for four million dollars. The reason for the financial sanctions was the statement of the network that their services are free, which misled users, according to the website of the Associated Press.

The agency found on the starting page of the social network the slogan “Free and anyone can join.” However, the Antimonopoly Service believes that Facebook made a profit by selling user personal data to third parties. At the same time, the resource acted “without notifying users of the quantity and cost of personal information transferred to the company.”
