Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interview with EU Digital Commissioner Mariya Gabriel
Facebook has come under pressure for selling access to users' personal data to other companies. Does that business model need to change?

We all knew that was the business model. But as the European Union, we'd like to really promote that there is no [?] contradiction between business models and the protection of personal data.

We all know there are values and there is responsibility. For me, that's the added value of the European approach. We are not the United States, we are not China. But as Europeans we'd like to keep this human-centric approach.

Users need to know what happened with their data. That's why we made consent a key element in the GDPR and ePrivacy. Let's not be afraid of the consent of users.

the "informed consent" of users may require compensation. Quarterly financial statements for each advertisers' campaign might do the trick.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
