In an annual report to a United States government agency, META said that the company will probably have to stop offering its most significant products and services if a new framework is not adopted.


While Meta claims that sharing data between countries and regions is critical to providing its services, the European Court of Justice has prevented it from doing so since July 2020, which is largely to protect users across Europe from having their data shared or sold without their knowledge.
