"The GDPR and European Union consumer law set out specific rules for terms and data policies which we have incorporated for European Union users".

Starting first in the EU, Facebook will prompt users on the site and the app with "permission screens" that will ask users to approve whether they want Facebook to be able to use certain personal data for features like facial recognition or to target ads based on political, religious, and relationship details. As of December of a year ago, Facebook had 239 million users based in the United States and Canada, 370 million users in Europe and 1.52 billion users in other countries.

With the decision to legally shift the bulk of its users from European protections to much looser U.S. privacy laws, we have the final word on how Facebook intends to apply European privacy protections outside of the continent: namely, it won't. That means when the strict data rules under the E.U.'s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) role around next month, Facebook would have to protect almost 1.9 billion users, including those in Africa, Asia, Australia, and Latin America.

Facebook has previously stated that they will not be rolling out GDPR laws to their worldwide platforms, it now seems that they're attempting to limit the power that the new laws have entirely.

"I know it's not lost on anyone in the free market community that with the GDPR on the way in Europe and the rapidly changing discussions here in Washington, there's an increased chance Washington will rush to regulate", Lori Moylan, a Facebook public policy manager, wrote.

All that is needed is a provision that any big Internet company doing business in the European Union would be required to offer the EU's end user license agreement (EULA) as an option for all accounts, no matter where they lived. "We think that this is a good opportunity to take that moment across the rest of the world", said Zuckerberg. The tech company may have found a new batch of trouble. One Irish official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he did not know of any plans by Facebook to transfer responsibilities wholesale to the United States or to decrease Facebook's presence in Ireland, where the social network is seeking to recruit more than 100 new staff. Facebook released a revised terms of service in draft form two weeks ago, and they are scheduled to take effect next month. But as the company's latest move shows, Facebook is extremely invested in avoiding the European regulation if it can. In a statement, the company said, "We've simply streamlined the contract location to ensure all members understand the LinkedIn entity responsible for their personal data".
