UK MPs ask Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to testify on data row

"This is part of a comprehensive internal and external review that we are conducting to determine the accuracy of the claims that the Facebook data in question still exists", the California social network giant said.

The firm said Nix's comments "do not represent the values or operations of the firm and his suspension reflects the seriousness with which we view the violation".

According to the broadcast, with the reporter posing as someone who wanted to influence an election in Sri Lanka, Nix suggested using an attractive woman to seduce a candidate the client was looking to defeat, or sending someone posing as a wealthy developer to pass on a bribe to a politician.

The Trump campaign used Cambridge Analytica to harvest detailed personal information to target voters on Facebook.

Art Hogan, chief market strategist at US investment bank B Riley FBR, told Sky's Ian King Live that investors were worried about impact on user numbers and ad revenues in the longer term.

Cambridge Analytica has denied any wrongdoing and says it presently conforms to all of Facebook's privacy policies. How to rein them in is a huge challenge.

The request comes amid allegations that a data-mining firm based in the U.K. used information from more than 50 million Facebook accounts to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election.

Parakilas told The Guardian he was disappointed that his superiors did not heed his warnings about a potential data breach.

He added that during the same meeting Democratic interviewers asked two hours of questions.

The Federal trade Commission is joining British authorities in investigating Facebook after a data firm with ties to President Trump harvested personal information from millions of users. "They don't understand how it works".

Kogan says Facebook made no objection, but Facebook says it was not informed of the change, CNN reported.

"Facebook demanding to inspect Cambridge Analytica whistleblower @chrisinsilico's computer & phone", she wrote, before adding comments apparently from Wylie. An Oxford Analytica official said the firm has been involved in a trademark dispute with Cambridge Analytica for a year.

With regulatory pressure on Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) seemingly ramping up by the minute, peer companies' stocks are feeling the heat as well.

Over the past few days, you might have seen #DeleteFacebook all over your Twitter feed, and it's all because of a huge scandal about privacy on the platform.

"Do you really want to see what you'll find?" he was warned, suggesting that Facebook was better off not knowing.

After the DCMS committee chairman Conservative MP Damian Collins announced on Sunday that he would drag Zuckerberg in front of the committee for a grilling, he has since followed through on that threat with a strongly worded letter.
