Summary Box: German watchdog nixes Facebook "Like"

The Associated Press
August 19, 2011


WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?: The data-protection commissioner for the German state of Schleswig-Holstein doesn't like Facebook's "Like" button, saying it leads to profiling that violates German and European law.

THE ORDER: The commission ordered state institutions to shut down their pages on the social networking site and remove the "Like" button from their websites.

COMPANY RESPONSE: Facebook insists it is in full compliance with European data protection laws.

Utter nonsense... I can't even begin to wrap my head around this. Sounds like a politician isn't getting enough attention...

Yeah, touchy-feely is what I call it.
