Facebook Meets with Belgian Privacy Regulators

Facebook Inc. executives met with Belgian privacy regulators to offer a more detailed defense of its practice of collecting data on nonusers in the country, in the wake of a court ruling there that it must halt the practice. The Belgian Privacy Commission brought the case against Facebook in June, accusing the company of raking in personal data of users as well as nonmembers, without asking for consent or adequately explaining how the data would be used.
