Canada fines Facebook CAD 9M over privacy claims

Canada’s competition watchdog has fined Facebook CAD 9 million after an investigation found the platform made ’misleading’ claims about personal information of Canadians on Facebook and Messenger. The Competition Bureau said Facebook’s privacy claims were not consistent with the way it shared personal data of users with some third-party developers.
