A Belgian court on Friday ordered Facebook to stop tracking internet users who have no Facebook account or face a fine of 250,000 euros a day.
According to the court, Facebook keeps tabs not only on its users, but even on people who have never visited the Facebook website itself.
Facebook must “stop following and recording internet use by people surfing in Belgium until it complies with Belgian privacy laws,” the Brussels court said, according to AP.
