Facebook remains unclear on commitment to extending EU General Data Protection Regulation worldwide

"Zuckerberg says Facebook will extend European data protections worldwide—kind of", 11 Apr 2018
…[B]efore the House Committee on Commerce and Energy, [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg stated that the changes Facebook is making in response to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be available worldwide. Zuckerberg made a commitment to not only provide the same privacy controls but making the same kinds of disclosures and treating users’ data the same. The GDPR imposes requirements on how user data is collected, and how user data must be deleted at the user’s request. However, only moments after giving a clear yes, he seemed to equivocate yet again… Zuckerberg was similarly ambiguous about whether this would be the case, possibly because his crib sheet… says in bolded text, “GDPR (Don’t say we already do what the GDPR requires)”… It’s not known whether Facebook is in GDPR compliance at the moment. The new rules go into effect on May 25th.
