Informed consent for personal data collection and use are not adequate to comply with the law. Social media site has been collecting information from users through their traffic data and interests after that they link them with their respective ads which actually is the breach of Consumer law in Germany.
The new law states that privacy notices must be in clear and plain language, and explicitly says that pre-ticked boxes and other forms of default consent will not be acceptable.

The verdict by a Berlin regional court was handed down in mid-January, and the Federation of German Consumer Organisations (VZVB) disclosed it on Monday.

In Facebook's case, based on a total revenue of $27.6bn in 2016, the maximum possible fine would be $1.1bn. "This meant that anyone could quickly and easily find personal Facebook profiles", Vzbv noted.

We work hard to ensure that our policies are clear and easy to understand, and that all aspects of the Facebook Service are in compliance with applicable law.
VZBV also lost several points and also plans to appeal.
The group also sought to argue that Facebook's claim that its service is "free and always will be" is misleading, on the grounds that consumers are "paying" with their data.
