The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has considered a preliminary injunction against Facebook over antitrust concerns, The Wall Street Journal reports. A potential FTC injunction would center on the tech company’s practices for integrating its apps and allowing them to interact with rivals, sources close to the situation said. Key products owned by Facebook include Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp. The sources noted the FTC may seek to block such app integration as a first step toward a potential break up of the company, adding that if the agency were to file the injunction, it may occur as soon as January.
