Facebook reportedly facing another antitrust probe

Тhe Federal Trade Commission is going after Facebook and its potential antitrust practices—and the tech giant's rivals are all too happy to help them out. The Wall Street Journal reports that FTC investigators are talking to Facebook's competitors both past and present about the company and its “hardball tactics” as part of its antitrust investigation, in order to get a better sense of the company's potential pattern of behavior to stifle its competition. Among those the agency has already reportedly reached out to is Snapchat owner Snap Inc., who have long felt that Facebook has been out to take them down.
