YouTube could be fined billions

YouTube is being accused of violating laws designed to protect children’s privacy online.
A complaint to the Federal Trade Commission is set to be filed by a coalition of nearly two-dozen campaign groups.
They claim YouTube is in breach of the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act because is collecting personal data to target advertising to those aged under 13.
YouTube could be fined billions of dollars if the complaint is upheld.
It comes in the wake in the wake of the scandal that has engulfed Facebook over the leak of up to 87 million users’ details to Cambridge Analytica.
