Facebook's parent company Meta has announced that it's suing the U.S. subsidiary of a Chinese tech company, accusing it of offering data scraping services for Facebook and Instagram. The social networking giant also revealed that it's suing an individual, who the company alleges set up automated Instagram accounts to scrape data from some 350,000 Instagram users.
