This would most likely only affect people who have 'cut the cord' and no longer receive broadcast signals via aerials, satellite or cable and thus think they don't need to pay the mandatory UK TV Licence fee. Since watching any form of live-broadcast TV, however it's delivered, including online, requires a TV licence, most of the people inconvenienced by this will likely not have much of a leg to stand on to complain.
Sorry... not sorry!This has to be one of the most amusing stories I've read for a while. Despite being a user of Facebook, I've always been suspicious of their privacy model and never give in to their incessant badgering to reveal personal information about myself, such as my address, phone number, school, etc. I won't even tag locations in photos. The sooner Facebook gets a bloody nose the better. They're riding roughshod over the norms of decent behaviour.
And yes, Apple should create their own alternative cross platform social network. Show Farcebook how to do privacy properly.

The EU already has a tax based on revenue. It's called VAT (Value Added Tax).
In addition, the European Commission does not have the right to raise taxes. That privilege is - for the time being - reserved to the sovereign treasuries of the EU member states.
This is a case of the EU massively overstepping its competencies and a Commission that, yet again, acts without any democratic mandate.
I'm very glad that the UK has voted to kick it to the kerb.
