Social media giant Facebook, now known as Meta Platforms, is being sued in the UK for more than $3.2bn. The plaintiff alleges that the company abused its dominant market position by benefiting from access to the personal data of 44 million users. 

The lawsuit, which will be heard by the London Competition Court of Appeal, alleges that Facebook made billions of pounds by imposing unfair conditions that required consumers to provide valuable personal data to access the network.
