Facebook fined $6.1 million in South Korea for sharing user data without consent

The Korea Communications Commission kickstarted the investigation in 2018 before ultimately handing it off to the PIPC a few months ago.

According to Yonhap News, the PIPC determined that the social network shared the personal information of 3.3 million South Korean users (out of a total of 18 million) to other companies without consent from May 2012 to June 2018. The watchdog said Facebook shared people’s names, addresses, dates of birth, work experience, hometowns and relationship statuses with other companies when they logged in.
