The Register: "Facebook's European operation is headquartered in Ireland and the company has already been in touch with the Irish DPA about the plans. A spokeswoman told us:
"We note that this is the consultation stage of their process and that until that stage is over these changes will not be tabled to users. We are currently examining the proposed changes and consider that further clarity will be required in relation to the full effect of some of the changes. We will be seeking urgent further clarification from Facebook Ireland and if we consider that the proposed changes require a specific consent from EU users we will require Facebook to do this."
