The news of yet another fine today for Meta is important not so much for the size of the fine, but the legal principle at stake. My reading of the decision is that Facebook can not use personal data to provide personalised advertising in Europe. As things currently stand, it seems to have no legal basis on which to do so. Gets three months to sort it out.

Meta prohibited from use of personal data for advertisment NOYB.
