Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to be questioned over data misuse

Meanwhile, Facebook said that it is "outraged" by the misuse of data by Cambridge Analytica, according to local media reports. My annual value level of $162.65 is now a pivot for the remainder of 2018.

Shares of Facebook had already lost 6.8 percent on Monday.

Facebook said it was pressing CA for answers, after getting assurances from the firm in 2015 that it had deleted all data.

"The Irish DPC is following up with Facebook Ireland in relation to what forms of active oversight of app developers and third parties that utilise their platform is in place with a view to ensuring it is effective", it said in a statement.

Facebook, like other social media platforms, and online user forums in general, is still living in the lotus-eater land of Section 230 protections.

Where in the world is Mark Zuckerberg?

Nix served as director of SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica's parent company starting in 2003, according to his LinkedIn profile, and in November 2012 began work as Cambridge's top executive. The campaign reached out to voters it grouped as "timid traditionalists" with different messaging than it did for "temperamental" voters, even if the calls, emails, and flyers were about the same Cruz stances on the same topics.

Cambridge Analytica have announced they have suspended their CEO Alexander Nix as undercover footage was released of the firm's executives boasting about their role in getting Donald Trump elected as US President.

Britain's Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham is seeking a warrant to search the offices on Tuesday of the London-based firm as part of a wider probe into the use of personal data. Here's what you need to know about the company. "The allegations also highlight the limited rights Americans have to their data". The company allegedly used data mined from Facebook to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election. She has also asked Facebook to cease its own audit of Cambridge Analytica's data use.

He said the data could be captured at a low price - "quick and cheap, this almost didn't cost anything" - and that such methods had the potential for major commercial benefits. Sure, it's cool to pretend you're a software company, an adtech agency, a mere neutral conduit for whatever the people want to say. The company, Cambridge Analytica, has denied wrongdoing.

Facebook has grown dizzyingly rich by operating what is in effect a mass surveillance tool.

Denham launched her investigation after weekend reports that Cambridge Analytica improperly used information from more than 50 million Facebook accounts. Publishers fall over each other to get their content uploaded to Facebook and shared by its vast audience.

In another he said: "We'll offer a large amount of money to the candidate, to finance his campaign in exchange for land for instance, we'll have the whole thing recorded, we'll blank out the face of our guy and we post it on the Internet".

A Cambridge Analytica spokesman said Monday it does not use "untrue material for any purpose".

"After the voters returned Obama to office for a second term, his campaign became celebrated for its use of technology - much of it developed by an unusual team of coders and engineers - that redefined how individuals could use the Web, social media and smartphones to participate in the political process", Issenberg wrote.

Cambridge Analytica provided documents to the House Intelligence Committee about its work with the Trump campaign last year.

The Facebook revelations have also prompted transatlantic reaction. They have never sounded this gloomy about Facebook before.

Asked if Zuckerberg should testify, Shah demurred. It did not specify whether it would give access to its servers.
