"The European Commission says Facebook offered 'misleading' information during its investigation of the social network's acquisition of messaging service WhatsApp in 2014 for $22 billion. At issue during the EU probe was the linking of users' Facebook and WhatsApp accounts. ... Facebook could receive a fine of up to 1% of its revenue if the Commission confirms its findings."
