Fining The Fakers

Facebook, or Fakebook?
Social Democratic Party parliamentary chairman Thomas Oppermann suggests fines as high as $519,000 for violations, according to an interview with German weekly magazine Der Spiegel.

“If after the relevant checks Facebook does not immediately, within 24 hours, delete the offending post then [it] must reckon with severe penalties of up to 500,000 euros.”

He also said Facebook hasn’t dealt with the problem enough. “Facebook did not avail itself of the opportunity to regulate the issue of complaint management itself,” Oppermann said. “Now market dominating platforms like Facebook will be legally required to build a legal protection office in Germany that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
What would Mark Zuckerberg do?
