Social media companies will have to amend their terms for European users

Social media companies Facebook Inc., Alphabet Inc. and Twitter Inc. will have to amend their terms of service for European users within a month or face the risk of fines, a European Commission official said on Friday.

US technology companies have faced tight scrutiny in Europe for the way they do business, from privacy to how quickly they remove illegal or threatening content.

The Commission and European consumer protection authorities will “take action to make sure social media companies comply with EU consumer rules,” the official said.
