Facebook and Instagram will no longer be allowed to run targetted ads in Europe

It looks like Facebook and Instagram will have to wait a lot longer to run targeted ads in European countries. Earlier, the two social media platforms had received a temporary Norwegian Data Protection Authority (DPA) ban, but it looks like Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) is to ban the processing of personal data for targeted ads, and in this case, the effects of the ban will be felt across the entirety of Europe.
