Mark Zuckerberg and team consider shutting down Facebook and Instagram in Europe if Meta can not process Europeans’ data on US servers

@gregmoore You mean you don't want Mark Zuckerberg to know your every action as you travel to other countries? 😂

@gregmoore I can imagine the meeting at Meta: "Here's my pitch everybody: the world... as one giant mall. 😍"
