Facebook, Google now facing multijurisdiction antitrust investigations

Recommended Posts

Last Friday, the New York attorney general (NY is the lead investigating state) announced the Facebook investigation which involves eight states plus DC.  


The investigation is expected to focus on Facebook's impact on advertising prices, data and consumer privacy and the company's previous acquisitions, including Instagram and WhatsApp


Today, 48 state attorneys general plus the attorneys general of DC and Puerto Rico announced the Google investigation (Texas is the lead investigating state). The only states not involved are California and Alabama.


The probe will focus on whether Google has harmed competition and consumers, looking at least initially into the company's conduct in its search, advertising and other businesses, though it may expand from there.
