Facebook is fined – do users really care?

Facebook has been fined £1b by the EU Meta: Facebook owner fined €1.2bn for mishandling data – BBC News.

The question has to be asked – is it the purists that only care or do the actual users not see an issue, and unconsciously accept that by using a free service, there is a tradeoff with their data and where it goes to?

It is the same with TikTok – everybody knew that their kids were using it, but were they really worried about whether they should use it?

Maybe we should be looking more at how to get companies like Meta to spend money on meaningful education rather than asking them for money which does no one any good.
