Contract excerpt
I do not have a contract, but the service terms are (partially) described on the website (in Romanian): https://www.vodafone.ro/socialmedianelimitat

Description

Vodafone Romania has launched new mobile packages which include unlimited Internet traffic for social media apps and websites. The promo description (available in Romanian at https://www.vodafone.ro/socialmedianelimitat) lists several big social media apps (such as Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp, Pinterest, Twitter, Snapchat, Tumblr, Viber, Message+) and mentions that "the lists of sites and apps is dynamic and could be modified as a consequence of technical or commercial conditions imposed by the providers). From our point of view (ApTI Romania - www.apti.ro) this does not represent a correct application of the net neutrality principles since Vodafone Romania's position is exclusively favoring big companies with a competitive market advantage. A letter has been sent to the National Regulatory Authority (ANCOM - www.ancom.org.ro) in order to launch an investigation and check compliance with BoR (16) 127 and zero rating assessment test (para 43 and 44 of the Implementation Guide).
