Some might view the construction of this particular DC in the Netherlands as a way of dealing with the increasingly thorny issue of data sovereignty, meaning the information on Facebook's European visitors would be kept in Europe. However, with the US seemingly supporting stateside storage of EU citizens' data, Meta might be less worried about pumping the brakes.

A future change of American government could probably change this in an instant.
