Marcus Aurelius: "We have concerns with the [possible] changes, such as requiring the maintenance of data in Brazil," said Bruno Magrani, head of public policy at Facebook Brazil, according to the report. "This requirement would entail huge costs and inefficiencies in online business in the country, it will impact small and new technology companies that want to provide services to Brazilians."Then maybe, just maybe, you should have struggled a little bit when the NSA was raping your data farm.
Evil Twin Skippy: So let me get this straight... no Only a server in Brazil is allowed to store a Brazilian's user data?
Evil Twin Skippy: So let me get this straight... no server in Brazil is allowed to store user data? Oh, that's perfectly workable! And how, pray tell, does the shipping department access the user's cookies when the need to know what address to send the order to?

serial_crusher: so if I have a Brazilian friend on Facebook, I have to go to a separate Brazilian Facebook site to see his stuff, or does my computer just have to make AJAX calls overseas?I don't really see this being feasible to implement.
BullBearMS: serial_crusher: so if I have a Brazilian friend on Facebook, I have to go to a separate Brazilian Facebook site to see his stuff, or does my computer just have to make AJAX calls overseas?I don't really see this being feasible to implement.Facebook already has server farms spread out across the globe.Why would putting one in Brazil be any different?
BullBearMS: serial_crusher: Performance.Then it will be slower, or Facebook can pull out of Brazil.Frankly, given the modern reality of Corporate ownership of politicians, one of the best things people outside the US can do to put an end to international NSA abuses is boycott American internet companies and develop their own local alternatives.When Facebook, Google, Apple, et al. start losing massive amounts of money, they will bring their pet politicians to heel.
