WASHINGTON—The federal government’s privacy investigation into Facebook Inc. appears to be nearing a conclusion, with the prospect of a large fine looming for the social-media giant. Federal Trade Commission officials have said privately that they are close to completing their investigation, according to a person familiar with the matter. FTC officials didn’t respond to a request for comment.
The ski resort of Davos, Switzerland, will again play host next week to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, drawing JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Facebook Inc. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan. Domestic political strife is forcing U.S. President Donald Trump and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to stay home.
The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s chief privacy watchdog, is weighing a penalty against the social-media giant for violating a 2011 settlement with the agency that required the company to take a series of steps to protect users’ personal information, said the person, who asked not to be named because the investigation is confidential. It’s also not clear whether the agency has settled on how much to seek from the Menlo Park, California-based company or whether it will also require changes to Facebook’s data collection and sharing practices.
