Facebook’s Tiny Privacy Fine Is a ‘Warning,’ Watchdog Says

Facebook Inc.’s German unit was handed a fine of 51,000 euros for failing to properly nominate a data protection officer for its local office, a penalty privacy regulators said should still serve as a “warning” to others.

While the punishment seems tiny for the social network giant, it targets the German unit and not the “billion-dollar parent company,” the data protection authority in Hamburg, Germany, said in its 2019 annual report published on Thursday.
