This would be very cool.

@leonp Another reason to move to Europe
@leonp We can only hope.
@leonp “Sharing data between countries and regions is crucial for the provision of its services and targeted advertising, Meta stressed.”
No surprise at Zuck’s motivations here. 🙄
@gregmoore You mean you don't want Mark Zuckerberg to know your every action as you travel to other countries? 😂
@simonwoods Incredible, right?! There's a theory that ads eventually turn all social networks into crappy malls and Zuckerberg seems to be supporting just that.
@gregmoore I can imagine the meeting at Meta: "Here's my pitch everybody: the world... as one giant mall. 😍"
