Facebook has some explaining to do in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, according to a report.
Data protection agencies in those countries want the Palo Alto company to detail what it does with the information it collects from its more than 750 million users, according to news agency Agence France-Presse.
"This is a common action to obtain better knowledge of how personal information is handled by the world's largest social network," Hans-Olof Lindblom, the Swedish Data Inspection Board's chief attorney, told AFP.
