Facebook has responded to requests from the Information Regulator for concrete figures on the number of users whose data was obtained by Cambridge Analytica.
Following the Facebook Cambridge Analytica scandal, MEPs will discuss data protection and citizens' privacy with Commissioner Jourová on Wednesday (18 April) at 15h.
"I do not know the specifics of these surveys or how the data was acquired or processed".
When it started working on coin offerings a year ago, Cambridge Analytica was boasting to investors that it was able to use its psychographic profiles to target new investors for the token sale.
Caught in a storm that some might say is of its own making after the Cambridge Analytica scam revealed that data from Facebook was used to influence public opinion preceding the 2016 U.S. elections, the social media major is now scrambling to restore users' trust.
Brittany Kaiser, a former employee for Cambridge Analytica, testified on Tuesday, April 17, in front of a United Kingdom committee investigating the scandal and claimed the research firm used other quiz apps to harvest personal data from Facebook users.
In response to these latest claims, Facebook said in a statement: "We are now investigating all apps that had access to large amounts of information before we changed our platform to dramatically reduce data access in 2014".
