People should boycott FB - and any other similar sites for that matter - for their own good anyway.

Welcome to EEC's magic world

The EEC just explained what has been the law in Europe long before the GDPR. The German publisher Heise for example has released a jquery plugin with data protection conforming social buttons in 2011 for this reason (link to fork with English docs). The buttons there act as placeholders and only load resources from the respective sites when clicked once.

I wonder if this ruling could potentially apply to websites using Google's recaptcha.

It would apply to embedded content from any non-EU site, but especially to all the big players who are known to practice data harvesting and aggregation.

Watch out. More is coming!

ePrivacy Regulation - kind of an update or maybe even upgrade to the existing GDPR.

You might want to read about it at your local law/privacy blogs - trust only professionals in this case and don't look for answers on any marketing blogs, please. 

This regulation is long overdue and will give us new chances and possibilities to hit the desk with our heads.

While it seems to be a good thing in some kind, like the GDPR, it might backfire as well and might hit the smaller ones once again.
