Facebook And Europe Go Head To Head For Cookies Policy

Under light of the recent privacy policies starting to emerge in Europe and the recent developments over the companies that abuse their ability and power to generate revenue from advertisements by using the private surfing data of users to share with advertisement agencies for more specific ad campaigns. Furthermore, cookies provide with a similar point over as they track the users data on the specific applications they are allowed for to initiate a specific details for the users and having them approached by brands they are inclined towards.

The new policies underlined in the European Union are highlighted in the General Data Protection Regulation and the ePrivacy Directive that Facebook needs to follow to ensure and continue their operations in the Europe Region, including all of its acquisitions that work on with the old policies.

Faced with these issues, Facebook was not only on the mission to follow suit with policies but also to please their users and their claimed statement with Newsroom says so as they went forwards in the interview by telling the channel about the level of security, safety and privacy they were not only willing to allow the users but also provide them with the option to customize their own cookies and updates that they like to and intend to share. Not only will these extend to what we do on Facebook but also to any and all websites and applications that Facebook is linked to and gains information from.

These changes are currently under the people beta testing stage and are expected to be rolled out sooner than later. With many of the concerned individuals of the internet community waiting eagerly for this update, it has caught the attention of not only other tech firms but marketing firms as well. These firms are expected to figure out a new way to have the same accuracy and approach despite the lack of the less info now.

As soon as these updates are rolled out, the users on both Instagram and Facebook would observe and receive a new option that allows them to contain their cookies at a granular level along with a consent prompt asking if they are willing to provide the details. The second thing that would be received by the users is a new cookies option (probably that we reported last month) that depending on where it is set would allow the users to select or reject the utilization of Facebook’s business tools and all of their provided services for better ad campaigns and more privacy oriented acts.
