A court in Belgium has ordered Facebook to stop tracking non registered users on its social network within 48 hours.
If Facebook does not comply with the ruling then it will be fined €250,000 about $269,000 for each day that it is still tracking non registered users.
When someone who is not a registered Facebook user visits a page on the site, the cookie is then placed on their computer, tablet or smartphone.
Facebook have said that they will be appealing the decision by the court in Belgium, it is not clear as yet whether the appeal will be lodged before the start getting fined, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
