By this commission, Facebook is considered to have provided misleading information related to the acquisition of WhatsApp worth US $ 22 billion in 2014.
Citing Business Insider, at the time, Facebook claimed that the company could not automatically integrate a Facebook user account with WhatsApp.
The Commission claims, Facebook staff already know about the possibility of his company to integrate Facebook and WhatsApp account, but did not mention it to the commission. They suspect, the reason is because companies understand regulators like the European Commission would make a fuss about this issue.
The Commission actually does not like it if there is one company that controls the market, both in terms of marketshare and the number of users. Not just Facebook, the European Commission is reportedly also being investigated Google because of the dominance of the search engine.
