Irish voters flocked to the polls on Friday to cast their votes in a historic referendum on abortion that may overturn what are some of the most restrictive laws in the world. Thousands of eligible voters living overseas flew in or took ferries to participate in a referendum that is asking them to repeal or uphold a constitutional amendment that makes abortion illegal in almost all cases, including rape and incest, unless the life of the mother is at risk.
Within hours of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect today, a privacy group accused Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOGL)'s Google, WhatsApp, and Instagram of violating Europe's strict new data-protection law. Austrian lawyer Max Schrems, a frequent critic of Facebook's privacy policies, on Friday filed complaints that claim the companies forced members to consent to terms of service with a "take it or leave it" threat.

A coalition of progressive groups is looking to spend as much as a six-figure sum on digital advertisements to promote its campaign to have Facebook (FB) broken up into smaller pieces, according to a report by Axios. The advertisements will run on platforms such as Instagram, Twitter (TWTR), and Facebook, implying that Facebook is poised to benefit financially from the coalition’s offensive. Instagram is one of the digital networking platforms owned by Facebook.
Twitter (TWTR) users could sooner or later be able to exchange encrypted direct messages on the platform, according to media reports citing clues in Twitter’s Android application code. Android, a Google (GOOGL) product, is the world’s most popular mobile operating system. In April, 75.7% of smartphones worldwide were running Android compared to 19.2% running Apple’s iOS and less than 1.0% running Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows.
