Will new eu privacy directive kill facebook

Will harmonization of eu data lead to better privacy rules across the eu? Soon the likes of Facebook might have to explicitly state what data they are storing on individuals.

The aim of the scheme is to force companies to store the minimum amount of data about us and to let individuals have that data back when they request it.

Vivian Reding, the eu justice minister is hoping to pass the legislation through and harmonize the whole eu.
