Meta warned that it may shut down its Facebook and Instagram for all european users because of some data privacy rules.

The reason for all of this is European regulations which are meant to place restrictions on the way EU citizen data gets transferred to the U.S.

However, European politicians don’t seem to be worried about that.

German Economy Minister Robert Habeck and French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire made their statements soon after Meta’s announcement.

AppleInsider reports that at an event in Paris Habeck admitted that after having been hacked he stopped using Facebook and Twitter and life has been fantastic to him for the last fours years. Le Maire on the other hand said:

“I can confirm that life is very good without Facebook and that we would live very well without Facebook.”

He also thinks digital giants must understand that the European continent will resist and affirm its sovereignty.

CNBC however, reports that Meta’s spokesperson announced that the company has no such plans at that moment and it has no intention of withdrawing from the European market.
