Unlink your Facebook account from third-party apps with these tips

Another of the firm's executives, head of data, Alex Tayler, bragged that data had snatched victory for Mr Trump from his rival Mrs Clinton. Facebook said it knew Cambridge had violated its policies by obtaining the data, which users had agreed to share with a personality prediction app that then, secretly, passed them on.

The name of Alex Stamos also came up. Or do you still love the social network? In addition, Keep the Promise II super PAC, which is associated with the "Keep the Promise" network of the Mercer-backed PACs, was funded by Cruz supporter and Texas billionaire Toby Neugebauer.

But Trump isn't the only prominent GOP client to pay for services from the firm.

Meanwhile, UK data protection officials are seeking a warrant to enter Cambridge Analytica's offices in London to inspect its servers and systems.

That came after reports that Cambridge Analytica, a data mining firm working for President Donald Trump's campaign, improperly obtained data on 50 million Facebook users without their permission. The problem is that Facebook lacks a strong policy that stops developers from selling this data to the highest bidder.

"We respected the privacy settings that people had in place", the statement said. However he voted, he may also not have understood how bots contrived to make particular stories or pages seem more popular than they are in reality, or that a part of the commentary underneath the articles was the work of paid trolls.

For Facebook, the controversy appears to be taking a toll. Political persuasion that used to take place in the open, in Congress or on the hustings.

Facebook has denied the data collection was a breach because people knowingly provided their information.

It's all thanks to a slew of unwelcome changes, including the most recent tweak that shows less posts from news publishers and celebs, and more from your mates and family members.

The social-media giant said it's also asked Wylie and Kogan to submit to an audit as well. It did not specify whether it would give access to its servers. The chairman of a British parliamentary committee announced Tuesday he was requesting that Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg, who has remained silent for days, appear before the panel to supplement prior testimony by the company's executives.

In 2009 to 2010, Facebook launched an app platform that ended up being dominated by games, which sent out constant spam invites. "That will help us determine possible next steps".

March 19 Democrat Senators Edward Markey and Richard Blumenthal called for hearings into the situation and for the Federal Trade Commission to investigate. Mark Warner Tuesday. "The American people deserve answers about social media manipulation in the 2016 election".

Earlier, an FTC spokeswoman said that the agency can't comment on whether it's investigating but said that it takes "any allegations of violations of our consent decrees very seriously".

"This is a rapidly moving, rapidly evolving situation because of technology".

Cambridge Analytica is the scandal-plagued data analytics company with ties to the Trump campaign.

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