& # 39; Privacy Violations & # 39; stay on Facebook


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Representatives from US regulators met to discuss Facebook's fine for violating a legal agreement with the government to protect the privacy of personal data, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing three sources of information.

The newspaper said the Federal Trade Commission had investigated Facebook's activities since last year, but had not completed the results of the investigation and had not yet completed the total amount of fines.

A source familiar with the newspaper said that Facebook spoke with Commission staff about the investigation.

But it is unclear whether the company will solve the problem with the commission by accepting fines, which are expected to exceed the fine imposed by the commission on the Alcatel-based Google search engine, reaching $ 22.5 million in 2012, the newspaper said.
