Why have Instagram and Messenger disabled some features in Europe?

Facebook must adapt to community rules. Surveys suspended, some stickers on Instagram and the ability to set personalized responses on Messenger

Instagram and Messenger warn of the deactivation of certain functions In these days, by accessing Messenger or Instagram, users will notice a banner that warns them that Facebook, in order to comply with the new rules on messaging services imposed by the European Union, has temporarily disabled some functions.

“We are updating our messaging services in response to the new privacy rules in Europe and directly informing the people of these changes. While some messaging features will not be available, most of the features on Messenger, Instagram and Facebook will continue to be available, ”a Facebook spokesperson told Mashable.

Facebook does not explain exactly which features were disabled and to find out you need to access the support pages of the company. Menlo Park has disabled the polls feature on Messenger and Instagram, some stickers on Instagram and the ability to set personalized responses on Messenger for European users.

Facebook has also disabled the sending of certain multimedia files on Messenger, the ability to use nicknames in chat and the ability to share some content with augmented reality effects on Instagram.

Menlo Park had to disable these features due to the new rules on the use of data applied in the countries of the European Union. Specifically, these are those contained in the European Electronic Communications Code (Eecc) which will come into force from 21 December 2020. These services are those that allow users to exchange content even without the need to have a telephone number, which is why which limitations affect Messenger and Instagram and not WhatsApp.

According to Facebook, most of the deactivated services will return "very soon". Despite this, a spokesperson pointed out that in any case "it takes time to rebuild the products so that they work seamlessly for people and that they also comply with the new regulations".
