What are they talking about? They can move DATA between countries, except personal data which do identifya a person. They still can process and store them localy in EU, and that's fine. If they are going to take it out to US and then share with partners, thats not allowed and either cope with that or go away.
I really hope EU commision will keep GDPR in place and wont give in to those scumbags.

Too bad all social media platforms can't be shut down. Younger generations today can't create a paragraph without several grammatical and spelling errors, and can't verbalize a single sentence without interjecting the word "like" into that sentence at least three times. They have become utterly socially inept, and barely able to communicate. This is what happens when social media teaches our children language, instead of our school systems.

Sorry but the bluff is over 9000. Like the shareholders will allow to shutdown their services in EU.

In the end, the combined cost of the loss in data collected to sell, active users, general traffic, stocks plummeting and the like will make opening a few data centers over Europe like small change.

edit: and by the way, Im up for this replicant to get out of my continent!

I'd love to see the hit "Meta's" stock prices would take if he did.

He lost over 30+ billion personally last week, and shutting down those "services", would place their stock in free fall.

Go ahead Zuckie, I f**king dare you. (y) (Y) .

Go away and don't come back! Your disgusting service is always disgusting! You shut down protest groups in Canada! You are unconscionable and disgusting! Goodbye, go away forever! You look like Myron (Fallout 2).
Info: Myron is a teenage pharmacologist and se**** predator in New Reno, credited with the invention of a cheap, mass-produced variant of Jet for the Mordino crime family.

Dear Facebook. Much as I loath you, please continue to function in free and Democracy centered nations. The people will decide if you should die, and nobody else. That used to be a staple of any free society, so remember that and ignore the panty wastes that think you don't deserve to exist simply because they think you are a big meanie for removing dangerous content that can hurt people, or worse. The people are responsible for what they do, say, read and believe. The people are responsible for watching and regulating what their kids do. And the people must suffer the consequences if they fail themselves, their friends or their family.

Yours in disgust,

My idea would be entirely feasible. Shut down both sites in Europe and America. Suddenly people would start to smile, say good morning again and even talk to each other when meeting. Leave the two programs in Russia and China if allowed and eventually they would become so totally confused that they would fight each other to the death.
The world now an exciting place to inhabit. WOW!
