Stressing that there is an online propaganda "arms race" with Russian Federation and it was important to make sure no one interferes in any more elections including in India, Zuckerberg told Congress that his own personal data was "improperly shared".

Zuckerberg has said Facebook will honor the European regulations and intimated he will apply them worldwide. So each time one of them told Zuckerberg during the hearings that he or she looked forward to "following up" with him, that could've been the signal. The fact that Facebook's ad targeting is, at times, so accurate that people assume the company must be spying on them is a great endorsement of Facebook ads.

This judgement shows that it is now cleat that courts will not tolerate the use of social media as a platform to vent discriminatory views, said Oosthuizen.

"Drug sales are strictly prohibited on Facebook", the Facebook tweet said.

"The real challenge is going to come now", Levick said.
