Facebook faces a fine of 250,000 euros ($308,000) each day in Belgium if the social media company continues to tracking people on third-party websites.  The case was brought to Belgian court by Belgium’s privacy watchdog and Facebook will have to delete all data it had gathered illegally on Belgian citizens, including non-Facebook users.
