Facebook UK users privacy
  • Facebook is going to make a significant transition with UK users going under California’s legal control.
  • The Brexit exit has allowed the social media giant to move away from Europe’s strict privacy laws.
  • The legal shift is going to occur in the next year.

The social media giant has decided to switch legal control from its Irish unit to its headquarters in California. Facebook decided to shift the U.K. user’s control to its native corporate land following the Brexit transition preparations of the U.K.

With the following change, Facebook U.K. will no longer comply with the EU privacy laws. First revealed by Reuters, Facebook later confirmed it.
