EU, Meta agree for stress test on EU online content rules, working on Digital Services Act

1,000 Meta employees are working on the Digital Services Act (DSA) 

Following EU industry chief Thierry Breton’s demand that the social media platform act immediately over Meta’s content targeting children, Meta and the European Union (EU) have agreed on a stress test in July on the EU’s online content rules.

“Productive discussion with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in Menlo Park on EU digital rules: DSA, DMA, and AI Act,” Breton said in a tweet, adding that 1,000 Meta employees are working on the Digital Services Act (DSA).

Meta would have to demonstrate the measures it plans to take to comply with European Union online content rules known as the Digital Services Act (DSA) after Aug. 25 or face heavy sanctions, Breton had earlier said in June.

Targeted advertisements on online platforms, such as those meant for children or when they use special categories of personal data, such as ethnicity and political views, have been banned by the Digital Services Act.
