Stock Drops, Zuckerberg Stays Silent, Regulators Want Answers — Facebook's Pain Continues

Facebook has suspended him from using its platform.

"We want people to know that we are not #CambridgeAnalytica", read a tweet by Oxford Analytica on Tuesday.

Tayler trained as a chemical engineer and joined Cambridge Analytica in 2014 as its lead data scientist, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The company's statement is notable for three reasons. And Facebook plans to hold a company-wide meeting today to discuss the trainwreck. Nix, who purportedly believed he was talking to a potential client, said Cambridge Analytica played a key role in shaping the Trump campaign's digital strategy. Because it wasn't just all about me.

The company held an open meeting with its employees on Tuesday to discuss the matter, but the BBC's North America technology reporter Dave Lee said neither Mr Zuckerberg nor his deputy, Sheryl Sandberg, chaired it.

Say hello to Oxford Analytica. So far, the US hasn't formally asked top social media executives to testify, though that could be changing. The PAC was also led by Conway prior to her joining the Trump campaign.

In a letter, Collins said that previous answers from Facebook officials about the misuse of data had been "misleading" to the committee.

Both of California's senators sit on the Judiciary Committee. Sen.

The Irish government has significantly increased the funding of the DPC in recent years following accusations its regulation system was weak. The committee also interviewed Nix via video conference.

Collins set Zuckerberg a deadline of March 26 to reply.

Oxford Analytica is a consulting firm that focuses on geo-political risk.

The broadcaster aired the comments as Cambridge Analytica's board of directors announced Nix's immediate suspension pending an independent investigation.

As part of a sales pitch, Nix said the firm sent emails with a "self-destruct timer" during the Trump campaign to make its role more difficult to trace.

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

The company's website lists five office locations in New York, Washington, London, Brazil, and Malaysia.

The council is offering free, high-speed Wi-Fi to Games' visitors, but users will be required to log on through their Facebook accounts.

"They will offer a large amount of money to the candidate, to finance his campaign in exchange for land, for instance".

What does it have to do with Facebook?

"Whether they are overly concerned by what Parliament thinks, they should be concerned by what their shareholders think and what their users think". Parakilas paints a dark picture of an information gathering free-for-all by incredibly shady characters.

"We have a long history of working behind the scenes", Nix says in the video. The FTC hasn't confirmed the investigation but said it takes "any allegations of violations of our consent decrees very seriously".

Facebook has weathered many such blow-ups before and is used to apologizing and moving on.

In one of these tweets, Stamos said the Cambridge Analytica data leak was not a "data breach", as it was initially called by the Observer, which first reported the story.

"We remain committed to vigorously enforcing our policies to protect people's information", Facebook's statement said.

However, Ms Denham's office said the firm failed to meet a deadline to produce the information requested. She says Facebook has agreed.

Cambridge Analytica is understood to have met with the Liberal party in a bid to sell their services in Australia.

At issue for the company - and at the heart of the FTC probe - is a settlement they reached with the agency in November 2011, ending an investigation that Facebook deceived users about the privacy protections they are afforded on the site.
