Facebook hit with antitrust lawsuits in United States

Facebook was hit this week with antitrust lawsuits in the United States, alleging the company stifles competition to protect its “monopoly power”.

The suits seek court orders unwinding Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram and WhatsApp, according to copies of the complaints provided by the agencies.
