Legislators demand answers from Facebook's Zuckerberg

Legislators demand answers from Facebook's Zuckerberg

In May 2014, access to friends data was restricted by Facebook in a platform upgrade, the DPC said.

The suspended CEO also suggested to a potential client that his company could portray politicians in compromising situations. The PAC paid $570,000 for Cambridge Analytica's services - the largest expenditure for the PAC during the election cycle. The meeting is scheduled to take place at 1P ET. A date has not been set.

The process of wiping the associated data also takes a bit of time.

Facebook lawyer Paul Grewel said in a statement provided to CNN that "Mr. Wylie has refused to cooperate with us until we lift the suspension on his account". In a letter to Zuckerberg, Sen.

Data mining company Cambridge Analytica has suspended its chief executive indefinitely after he was captured on hidden camera bragging about manipulating elections.

When asked if there would be incriminating evidence, Nix replied that his team used a self-destructing email system that leaves no trace.

"There's no evidence, there's no paper trail, there's nothing", he said.

Brad Parscale, the 2016 Trump campaign's main digital adviser who dealt regularly with Cambridge Analytica, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

First, go to your Facebook page.

Alex Tayler, labeled as the chief data officer for Cambridge Analytica, is recorded separately as saying the firm's analysis was responsible for Trump's Electoral College performance.

The Wall Street sell-off comes after reports that Facebook user data was improperly obtained by Cambridge Analytica, a consulting firm used by Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Mark Turnbull, left, Cambridge Anaytica's managing director, and CEO Alexander Nix.

The company has strongly denied any such involvement.

He was also recorded saying: "It sounds a dreadful thing to say, but these are things that don't necessarily need to be true as long as they're believed". "The lack of oversight on how data is stored and how political advertisements are sold raises concerns about the integrity of American elections as well as privacy rights".

The firm found itself in further allegations of wrongdoing.

As Tech Crunch noted, it took nearly six years from the site's founding in 2004 until late 2010 before Facebook reached a total of $50 billion in market value. Two, the statement frames the story as a deception in which Facebook was not the bad actor but the victim.

Commissioner Elizabeth Denham is pursuing a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica's servers.

Facebook also drew continued criticism for its alleged inaction to protect users' privacy. "And the real question is how did the Russians know how to target their messages so precisely to undecided voters in Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania - that is really the nub of the question". She says Facebook has agreed. The 50 million raw profiles were then transferred to Cambridge Analytica, an act that violated Facebook's policies.

A Facebook spokesperson said Tuesday that the entire company is "outraged" they were deceived by Cambridge Analytica, but lawmakers in Congress and the British parliament are holding Facebook responsible, and want answers directly from Zuckerberg.
