UK parliament asks Zuckerberg to testify — The Latest

The reports have put Facebook in the spotlight, yet again, as debate kicks off over whether the tech giant failed to protect users' data. And who's responsible for how those personal details are used? "This is going to let you try apps without fear". "Aleksandr Kogan requested and gained access to information from users who chose to sign up for his app, and everyone involved gave their consent".

Facebook, meanwhile, said it had hired its own digital forensic team to audit Cambridge Analytica.

The Facebook revelations have also prompted bipartisan, transatlantic concern.

"We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people's profiles and built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons", Christopher Wylie, a Cambridge Analytica whistleblower, told The Observer, a British newspaper on Sunday.

Cambridge Analytica was working to develop techniques that could be used to influence voters.

The reports say the FTC is also investigating any access granted by Facebook to the data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, which has ties to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

The company has so far denied any wrongdoing.

The UK's Information Commissioner announced it is to apply for a search warrant for the London-based firm's offices.

While Facebook executives have been active in discussing the Cambridge Analytica story on internal forums, Tuesday's meeting will represent the first time a large group of employees will have the opportunity to question company leadership live and in person.

"In playing along with this line of conversation, and partly to spare our 'client' from embarrassment, we entertained a series of ludicrous hypothetical scenarios", the company said in a statement.

Facebook has recently been under lots of pressure due to the constant heavy flow of click bait, ads, and fake news, to which the company has had several responses but none that are actually effective or particularly solid.

But, the new information about "Facebook's connection to Cambridge Analytica" has raised "further questions" for the DCMS. "They say 'trust us.' Mark Zuckerberg needs to testify before Senate Judiciary", she added. One, using social media and data analytics has already become increasingly important since the last elections.

The villain of the entire episode happens to be Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics firm linked to Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL). With other connections suggesting rules violation on the social media platform. "The privacy violations there are significant", Republican Senator Jeff Flake told CNN.

The losses would be Facebook's biggest daily fall since a broader market pullback in February. When did they know it?

"I am aware how this looks ..."

Facebook's stock has been pummeled amid the fiasco.

Finally, it's worth saying, Facebook isn't the only website that collects vast amounts of information about its users and exploits it in this fashion.

Lawmakers have called on Zuckerberg to explain his company's actions. "It's clear these platforms can't police themselves".
