+ - Germany Declares Facebook Like Button Illegal 2

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Not only has Germany declared Facebook's facial recognition technology and wild Facebook parties illegal, but the country today found Facebook's Like button in violation of its strict privacy laws. Commissioner Thilo Weichert, who works for the Independent Centre for Privacy Protection (ULD) in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, said the social network’s plugin, which allows Internet users to express their appreciation of something online, illegally puts together a profile of their Web habits."
