Global activists of Avaaz, set up cardboard cutouts of Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg, on which is written ‘Fix Fakebook’, in front of the European Union headquarters in Brussels, on May 22, 2018.

A European lawmaker has called for updated regulation on Facebook and other social networks after a trove of revelatory emails was released by the British Parliament.

The emails published by British Parliament had been under seal in a California court as they were obtained by Ted Kramer, founder of Six4Three, an app maker suing Facebook, as part of the legal discovery process. Six4Three, which shut down its app in 2015 after Facebook changed its policies around the sharing of users’ data, alleges the social network drove developers away through anti-competitive measures.
