    EU lawmakers seek to limit use of data by internet firms (see Yahoo article).

    EU plans to give users of social networks such as Facebook more CONTROL over their personal data so they transfer their personal data to other site as they please. This could spell disaster for Facebook. If so in addition to current other social networks many other ones will pop up with different platforms and promises and lure people to move from Facebook to their site and Facebook will have no choice but to ALLOW their users to take their data and move on. Imagine if this was also extended to US (we know that China banned Facebook there because of similar unmet requests).
