Compliance
Legal-wise and logic-wise, makes a certain amount of sense to me (in the context of this article, of course; I have not read the full opinion/decision, so perhaps (or perhaps not) my opinion would change if it did).  You reach out to do business in a jurisdiction, you gotta deal with the laws of the land there.

On the other hand, this is why you compliance costs are so high for companies -- and why those costs get passed on to consumers and users one way or another.

Plus, facial tagging is one of THE features of FB.  The paternalism here just seems silly -- but, then, I am not an Illinois voter.
