Cambridge Analytica must hand data to USA citizen, says British regulator

  • Cambridge Analytica and its UK parent SCL Elections Ltd on Wednesday said they would cease operations and begin bankruptcy proceedings

In fact, an online Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2,194 adults conducted April 26 to April 30 found that about half of Facebook's USA users said they had not changed the amount of time they spend on the world's largest social network, and a quarter actually said they were using it more.

The company profited from a feature that meant apps could ask for permission to access your own data as well as the data of all your Facebook friends.

Would you be willing to pay to use Facebook without advertisements?

Cambridge Alaytica has closed its offices and Mark Zuckerberg spent two days testifying before Congress because of the outraged at what they saw as the irresponsible use of personal data.

Living the dream would best describe Sonam's state of mind as she laughed, loved and danced her heart out like nobody's watching. As per a report in a major news daily, Sonam reportedly met Anand through a mutual designer friend, Pernia Qureshi.

The remaining quarter said that they were using it less recently, had stopped using it or deleted their account. While all wrongdoings by the massive data firm have been denied, it has been alleged that the firm illegally collected data generated from a quiz taken by Facebook users. Financial results in the first quarter show the number of monthly users in the USA and Canada rose to 241 million from 239 million in eight months. Only 20% were sharing less because of negative news stories in the media.

Facebook earlier came clean about how almost tens and millions of its user data was illegally accessed by Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm, that worked on the Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

While the minister welcomed certain changes Facebook had brought about to protect user privacy, Barley wrote that Facebook had so far failed to assume responsibility for its inappropriate corporate behaviour and criticised plans to transfer the storage of some user data from the European Union (EU) to the US.

User activity appears to be returning to normal, an Angus Reid Institute/Global News poll released in mid-March, looks quite different. Twitter would stand to benefit more as Snapchat and Instagram are very specific social networks with tailored use-cases. However, less than a quarter claimed that they felt they had full control of their data. Users of other social media platforms were not as confident about protecting their data. A large majority (69%) of respondents said that they know how to change their privacy settings, yet 56% of those surveyed have not made any changes to their privacy settings on the Facebook platform.
