UK parliament asks Mark Zuckerberg to testify — UPDATE

On Monday, Facebook said it hired a digital forensics firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Cambridge Analytica to determine if the Facebook data the company collected still exists or if it's been destroyed. "Privacy and data protections are fundamental to every decision we make".

And Scott Brison, the acting minister for democratic institutions, says he would also be open to strengthening federal privacy laws to better protect those who share their information online.

Germany's DAX added 0.7 per cent and the CAC 40 in France gained 0.6 per cent. Britain's FTSE 100 closed 0.3 per cent higher. You see this frustration in the backlash against Facebook, in musicians' grief over YouTube and Spotify eating away at their income, and in the scandals over companies like Uber employing user data to track journalists.

"Facebook data was not used by Cambridge Analytica as part of the services it provided to the Donald Trump presidential campaign", a statement read.

Former FBI official Frank Figliuzzi tells me he has no reason to believe Facebook knowingly cooperated with disclosure of its users' information.

The firm insisted it followed the correct procedures in obtaining and using data, but it was suspended from Facebook last week.

Facebook had sent staff to Cambridge Analytica's office on Monday night prior to Elizabeth Denham, the U.K. data commissioner, asking for a warrant to search the premises. "It is just the tip of the iceberg".

"These groups and pages, which addressed divisive U.S. political and social issues, falsely claimed to be controlled by U.S. activists when, in fact, they were controlled by Defendants", Mueller wrote in the indictment. Facebook doesn't give instructions on how to best reach out the app.

"This was a company [Cambridge Analytica] that really took fake news to the next level by powering it with algorithms", he said in an interview on the Today Show Monday morning. Nicholas Chahine pointed to a reasonable valuation and support around the current price of $172. Meanwhile, Mark Warner, the U.S. Senator who is vice chair of the Intelligence Committee, has also requested that Zuckerberg, along with other tech CEOs, testify in order to answer questions about Facebook's role in "social manipulation" in the 2016 election.

A British TV news program is airing more footage from the secretly recorded meeting one of its reporters had with Cambridge Analytica chief Alexander Nix.

Mr Turnbull described how, having obtained damaging material on opponents, Cambridge Analytica can discreetly push it onto social media and the internet.

In the case of Bitcoin, the blockchain is not stored on a central server, but is continuously updated by computers all over the world.

"Facebook, Google, and Twitter have amassed unprecedented amounts of personal data and use this data when selling advertising, including political advertisements", said Sens.

"We entirely refute any allegation that Cambridge Analytica or any of its affiliates use entrapment, bribes, or so-called "honey-traps" for any purpose whatsoever..."

"So if they were getting advice from say Cambridge Analytica or someone else about OK here are the 12 voters in this town in Wisconsin - that's whose Facebook pages you need to be on to send these messages that indeed would be very disturbing".

Fadden describes Facebook as a sort of "vacuum cleaner" that will take in and categorize as much information as its users give it. The more information a user provides, the easier it becomes for advertisers to target that person with things they want.

The company will hold an open meeting with its employees later to discuss the matter, tech news website The Verge is reporting.

Facebook said in a statement it rejected "any suggestion of violation of the consent decree".

Claims by The New York Times and UK media that Cambridge Analytica tried to influence how Americans voted using information improperly gleaned from 50 million Facebook users have already seriously hurt its brand.

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

The Trump campaign has used the firm during the 2016 election.
