According to the report of Reuters : Brazil's Ministry of Justice said on Monday it has fined U.S. tech giant Facebook 6.6 million reais ($1.6 million) for improperly sharing user data. The ministry's department of consumer protection said it had found that data from 443,000 Facebook users was made improperly available to developers of an App called 'thisisyourdigitallife.' The data was being shared for "questionable" purposes, the ministry said in a statement.

    So around $4 per affected person?

    This is for PR. Facebook won't even take this seriously.

    And Brazil just put a price on how much personal data is worth per person in that county. The price tag is set now for Brazilians.
