Several media outlets are reporting that the Federal Trade Commission is gearing up for a possible antitrust lawsuit against Facebook.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the FTC has investigated Facebook for more than a year over concerns the social media gobbled up its competition.
In July, CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified in a House Judiciary Committee hearing if his company violated antitrust laws when it acquired Instagram and WhatsApp.
In June 2019, the FTC leveled a $5 billion penalty against the company for privacy violations, Bloomberg reported.
In Nov. 2011, Facebook settled with the FTC over charges it deceived consumers.
