European Data Protection Day: Commission warning echoes around the globe

Today is the European Data Protection Day, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the Council of Europe to celebrate the "birthday" of the European Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data signed on 28 January 1981.

Is that why EU Commissioner Jacques Barrot warns young people to use Facebook? It feels like he is number 100 on the list of politicians to do so, and I kind of get bored.

But boredom is the biggest success of EU institutions these days, right?

You may have a very good, if ironically redundant, point.
