Facebook suspends apps after Cambridge Analytica scandal

CAIRO, AUG 23 SEE :Facebook suspended more than 400 of thousands of applications it investigated to determine whether people’s personal information was being improperly shared after Cambridge Analytica scandal, AFP reported today.

 

Vice president of product partnerships Ime Archibong said: ” Applications were suspended due to concerns around the developers who built them or how the information people chose to share with the app may have been used.”

 

Britain’s data regulator announced last month that it will fine Facebook half a million pounds for failing to protect user data, as part of its investigation into whether personal information was misused ahead of the Brexit referendum.

 

Facebook admitted that up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked by Cambridge Analytica, which was working for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
