Dixon said the inquiries are part of 16 cases the DPC has launched against tech companies, which include Twitter, Apple and LinkedIn. “We’re at various concrete stages in all of them, but they’re all substantially advanced,” said Dixon, who added final decisions in the investigations may not come until the summer. CNBC reports Facebook has seen an increase in users and strong earnings despite its privacy issues, and CNET reports Apple has reinstated Facebook’s enterprise certificates to run internal-tested iPhone apps.
