Mark Zuckerberg’s revelation on Capitol Hill that he had his own data harvested has been echoed across the Atlantic, as British Facebook users are being notified about what happened to their personal details.

The department described the meeting as “robust but constructive”. Facebook executives were told they face increased regulation and even new legislation.
