Facebook推迟欧盟推出约会服务

2020-2-13 12:43

 

据路透社报道,在爱尔兰数据保护专员(DPC)对Facebook在欧盟的新约会服务表示担忧后,Facebook推迟了原定于周四在欧盟推出的新约会服务。


这家社交网络公司于9月宣布在美国推出这项服务。他们允许用户将自己的Instagram账号与Facebook的约会档案整合在一起,并将Instagram粉丝添加到他们的“秘密暗恋”名单中。


爱尔兰的DPC是欧盟的主要监管机构,负责监管包括Facebook在内的许多全球最大的科技公司。DPC表示,它是在2月13日被告知Facebook将于2月3日上市的,它非常担心自己会在这么短的时间内接到通知。


DPC在一份声明中表示,由于没有收到有关Facebook进行的数据保护影响评估或决策过程的文件,这些担忧进一步加剧。


为了加快进程,DPC官员于2月10日在都柏林的Facebook爱尔兰办公室进行了一次检查,并收集了文件。


“Facebook爱尔兰分公司昨晚通知我们,他们已经推迟了这一功能的推出,”监管机构表示。该机构已对Facebook及其WhatsApp和Instagram子公司展开了多项隐私调查。


Facebook对路透表示:“Facebook交友网站的推出非常重要,所以我们需要更多一点时间来确保该产品已经准备好进入欧洲市场。”


Facebook的一位女发言人表示:“我们一直在谨慎地建立强有力的隐私保护措施,并在欧洲推出之前与IDPC共享了这些信息。”

 

Facebook has postponed the rollout of its new dating services in the European Union scheduled for Thursday after Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) raised concerns about the launch, Reuters reports.

The social network announced the launch of the services in the United States in September. They allow users to integrate their Instagram accounts with Facebook’s dating profile and add Instagram followers to their “Secret Crush” lists.

Ireland’s DPC, the main regulator in the European Union for a number of the world’s biggest technology firms including Facebook, said it was told about the Feb. 13 launch on Feb. 3 and was very concerned about being given such short notice. 

The DPC said in a statement that those concerns were further compounded when it was given no documentation regarding data protection impact assessments or decision making processes that had been undertaken by Facebook.

To expedite the process, DPC officers conducted an inspection at Facebook Ireland offices in Dublin on Feb. 10 and gathered documentation, it said.

“Facebook Ireland informed us last night that they have postponed the rollout of this feature,” said the regulator, which has a number of privacy investigations open into Facebook and its WhatsApp and Instagram subsidiaries.

“It’s really important that we get the launch of Facebook Dating right so we are taking a bit more time to make sure the product is ready for the European market,” Facebook told Reuters.

“We have worked carefully to create strong privacy safeguards, and have shared this information with the IDPC ahead of the European rollout,” a Facebook spokeswoman said.
