Facebook To Halt Tracking Non-Facebook Users In Belgium

In an effort to comply with a recent court ruling in Belgium, Facebook will now only track users that are logged into their accounts. Facebook plans to appeal the ruling but has decided to comply in the mean time to avoid massive fines.

The company's action means Belgians will have to log into Facebook before they can see Facebook pages, forcing them to create and sign into an account if they want to view the pages or related content. Previously non-users could view public Facebook pages from sports teams, celebrities, tourist attractions and businesses without needing to log into Facebook.
