Europe Tightens the Leash on Big Tech

Starting Friday, European users of social media platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and tech giants like Google and Amazon will see changes due to new EU digital regulations.

These changes include the ability to turn off AI-recommended videos, easier ways to flag harmful content, providing reasons for post takedowns, and the ability to report fake products. The Digital Services Act aims to protect European users by addressing privacy, transparency, and the removal of harmful or illegal content. Zalando, an online fashion marketplace, is confident in its ability to comply with the new regulations, as it closely controls the content on its platform, limiting the risk of illegal material.

The Digital Services Act aims to address issues such as illegal content and ensure a trustworthy online shopping experience. On the other hand, platforms like TikTok, Snapchat, and Meta are implementing restrictions on targeted advertising to children in response to concerns about privacy and manipulation.
