Meta: EU opens proceedings against Facebook and Instagram

( - The European Commission today opened formal proceedings to assess whether Facebook and Instagram provider Meta may have breached digital services legislation.

The alleged infringements cover Meta's policies and practices regarding misleading advertising and political content on its services. They also concern the non-availability of real-time civic discourse and an effective third-party election monitoring tool ahead of the European Parliament elections.

The Commission suspects that the mechanism for reporting illegal content on the services ('Notice-and Action') as well as the mechanisms for user redress and internal complaints handling do not comply with the requirements of digital services legislation, and that there are shortcomings in Meta's provision of publicly available data to researchers.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said: 'This Commission has created ways to protect European citizens from targeted disinformation and manipulation by third countries. The major digital platforms must meet their obligations to devote sufficient resources to this. '
