Facebook had to block some of the Instagram functions in Europe

Facebook had to block some of the functions of the popular social network Instagram and the proprietary Facebook Messenger for European users.

Facebook began to notify users in Europe about the temporary unavailability of the functions of its services. A small message started popping up on Instagram and Facebook Messenger apps this week among European users. It states that some features are not available “out of respect for the new rules for messaging services in Europe.” It is also noted that the company is already working on their restoration.

Facebook does not specify exactly what features are missing. However, in the support section, you can find messages about the unavailability of polls and “personalization” of responses in Messenger, as well as polls and stickers on Instagram. Also, other usual features of the services may be missing.

The new rules mean the directive of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union 2002/58 / EC “on privacy and electronic communications”, which sets stricter rules for the use of data in communication services.
