Facebook deleted all EU facial recognition data, regulators confirm

Loek Essers | Feb. 8, 2013

Facebook couldn't immediately comment on the exchange of source code with the data protection authorities, but a spokesman for a public relations agency representing Facebook said that it is "of course true" that the data was deleted. There are no plans "for the moment" to switch the facial recognition on again in Europe, he said.
