Facebook parent company Meta was accused by European Union regulators on Monday of failing to comply with landmark EU anti-competition rules regarding its recently launched ad-supported social networking service.

The Commission has dubbed the ad-supported subscription option a “pay or consent” model – meaning users must either pay to use Meta's platform ad-free, or consent to have their data processed for personalised advertising. The service was rolled out to Facebook and Instagram in Europe last year.
