Facebook to notify users affected by data breach

What to do if your Facebook data was exposed

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie has said that at least 50 million accounts were compromised after users took a personality quiz that then collected data from users and their friends.

"We know we were slow to pick-up foreign interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, Facebook said on reports that Russian agents bought ads or spread misinformation on its social media outlets during the presidential polls".

And now, Professor of Law, Maureen Mapp told Money Control that anyone who has been breached could be entitled to thousand of Euro in compensation. The requirement for issue ads is new. Those ads targeted Facebook users on hot-button subjects including gun rights, gay rights, religion and presidential candidates Trump and Hillary Clinton. It's all about cash money on this week's #GirlsWithGoals Listen in on your iPhone or Android now.

Facebook's move against AggregateIQ also comes just a few days before Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify at hearings on Capitol Hill, where legislators in the Senate and House of Representatives will question him on the widening scandal.

Instagram, who is owned by Facebook, also allows messages to be deleted if the recipient has not viewed it or its ancillary push notification.

But when the company discovered the problem, she said, executives relied on the consulting firm's assurances that it had deleted the data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down about 1.6% in morning trading, following Asian markets broadly lower. In a statement released Thursday, Trump said he found China's retaliation "unfair" and has instructed U.S.

"We believe most people on Facebook could have had their public profile scraped in this way", Schroepfer said in a blog post.

"We also think it's important for people to be able to see the other ads a page is running, even if they're not directed at you".

Perhaps the announcing the unsend feature is a way to soften the severity of deleting messages from users conversations without consent or notice by making it look like they were testing the feature.

Further, the 87 million FB users who might have had their data shared with Cambridge Analytica will receive a detailed message informing them of this.

"I'm not going to sit here and say that we're not going to find more, because we are".
