Facebook Hit with $5 Billion Fine

Facebook has agreed to a $5 billion fine and various restrictions to settle a case with the Federal Trade Commission.

Wednesday’s government complaint against Facebook describes numerous cases of sneaky behavior, including disclaimers that disappeared.

Facebook is doing just fine on Wall Street, despite being slapped with a record $5 billion fine for its mishandling of personal information.

The company’s stock had slipped by less than 1% to $201.51 in Wednesday’s midday trading, a few hours after the Federal Trade Commission announced the settlement. The FTC investigation was triggered by revelations that the data mining firm Cambridge Analytica had harvested information on as many as 87 million Facebook users.
