On the first day of GDPR enforcement, Facebook and Google have been hit with a raft of lawsuits accusing the companies of coercing users into sharing personal data. The lawsuits, which seek to fine Facebook 3.9 billion and Google 3.7 billion euro (roughly $8.8 billion in dollars), were filed by Austrian privacy activist Max Schrems, a longtime critic of the companies’ data collection practices.
I think it's kind of jumping the gun. I would imagine that complying with GDPR on the scale of Google or Facebook would take some time to figure out, right?

I hate GDPR. But it's not like they had two years to do that, though.
2018 - May - Following a 2 year post-adoption grace period, the GDPR will become fully enforceable throughout the European Union.

This isn't the United States. These will quite likely be thrown out of court, as they were filed by a troll. Violations of GDPR will probably be handled by the European Commission, not civil courts.
