For those of we still uncertain what’s going on with Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, we can see a full play-by-play here.
Here’s a full twin from a imitation ad:
We have a shortcoming to strengthen your information. If we can’t, we don’t merit it.
You might have listened about a ask app built by a university researcher that leaked Facebook information of millions of people in 2014. This was a crack of trust, and I’m contemptible we didn’t do some-more during a time. We’re now holding stairs to make certain this doesn’t occur again.
We’ve already stopped apps like this from removing so most information. Now we’re tying a information apps get when we pointer in regulating Facebook.
We’re also questioning each singular app that had entrance to vast amounts of information before we bound this. We design there are others. And when we find them, we will anathema them and tell everybody affected.
Finally, we’ll remind we of that apps you’ve given entrance to your information — so we can close off a ones we don’t wish anymore.
Thank we for desiring in this community. we guarantee to do improved for you.
