Facebook and Google are going to face new antitrust lawsuits in the US

Big Techs are facing issues with antitrust authorities in the United States. WSJ has recently reported that federal and state antitrust authorities of the US are going to file new lawsuits against Google and Facebook, the two leading techs.

As per the report, both the tech companies are facing four more cases. It is assumed that these cases will get filed by the end of January 2021. Just a few weeks before the Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google.

Seeing the new legal troubles for the companies, the officials are probing both Facebook and Google proclaiming that they have misused their position in the industry to dominate the Social Media, Search, and Advertising sectors.

In the United States, it will be the first time that Facebook will face an antitrust lawsuit. However, both Google and Facebook have denied doing so and stated that they are offering most of their service for free which benefits the customer, being in a highly competitive market.
