Facebook plans to appeal a Belgian court ruling that mandated a cease-and-desist of “datr cookie” use, Reuters reports. The cookie allegedly tracks the online habits of non-Facebook users after visiting the site. "We've used the 'datr' cookie for more than five years to keep Facebook secure for 1.5 billion people around the world," a spokeswoman said. "We will appeal this decision and are working to minimise any disruption to people's access to Facebook in Belgium." Meanwhile, the site announced that its "Messenger" tool will employ facial recognition technology for an “easier, faster way to share photos,” USA Today reports.
