Russia's communications regulator is looking to slap Google with an up to $240 million fine

This is after Google refused to pay smaller fines, which were for failing to delete content that is deemed illegal in Russia.

Bebochekov, 20 Oct 2021It's just about only old people who use Facebook now. ... morei beg to differ. i sell electronics stuffs (phones, laptops, TVs) and facebook supplies about 70% of my overall sales and most of these buyers are averaged at their 20s. Most "oldies" use WA instead (i also have catalog in WA)
I have twits and ig too, and also some other market platforms to sell onto but fb doesn't seem like it's dying anytime soon, at least from e commerce point of view

Instagram is busy with young folk but that can be a problem. I see governments around the globe imposing restrictions on Zuckerberg Apps, governments can shut down use in their countries. This is only the start of restrictions and fines.

Bebochekov, 20 Oct 2021Facebook is being fined too, don't worry. Yes Facebook has plenty of judgement going it's way. The trouble FB has caused over the years, supporting all kinds of evil, I am sure one day FB will truly fall in a big way. Imagine a world without FB, cackle...

forhad-61, 19 Oct 2021Chuckles. Russia Rocks, Google Shocks xD More like Russia rots.... The way it's going, when commodity prices tank the next time, Google will have higher profits than Russia's GDP. Maybe Putin will sell Russia to the Chinese before he keels over and it will become one large Chinese mine.

Good. Slap away!
