Up to 87M users hit

Now it became known that Facebook data of 87 million people was shared with Cambridge Analytics and used during US elections 2017.

US were hit the hardest: over 70M users’ data was used by the Cambridge Analytics. Australia is also on the list and takes the 10th place. The fact that 300K Australians were implicated has brought a new wave of scandal from the Australian Information Commissioner.

2 billion users’ data might be skimmed

According to Business Insider, the Facebook feature allowing to look for the user using their email address and phone number might have caused the data breach.

For sure this feature is useful and helpful for those, who are looking for the old acquaintance or classmate. Nevertheless, Facebook confirmed they were to delete this feature from the website.

Zuck isn’t ready to leave FB

Mark Zuckerberg is now CEO of Facebook, as well as a chairman of the company’s board. Notwithstanding the current situation with the data breach, Zuck won’t leave his position.

“I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I’m responsible for what happens on our platform. I’m serious about doing what it takes to protect our community,” Mark says in his statement.

Of course, he’s the founder of FB, but at the same time, he’s the main public figure to represent the corporation. That’s why company’s board might think about the decision to replace Zuck from his current CEO position with someone who’s more trustworthy.

$17,500 compensation 

After the scandal, people started deleting their data from the website and, as a consequence, Facebook market value has fallen up to %7 ($100B). 

To save the situation, the company and Mark Zuckerberg himself have promised to delete all the features that allow stealing private information.

Also, law professor Maureen Mapp stated Facebook would have to pay a bill of up to $880 billion.

“Assuming each one of them brought a claim for compensation for distress caused by the data breach… each individual may be awarded £12,500 ($17,500) as damages.”

Taking into account that current Facebook’s value is twice less than the required amount of money, it’s more likely that each user will receive $700.

More to know

Mark Zuckerberg agreed to take a trip to Washington to testify about privacy issues before Congress. His decision put pressure on Google and Twitter CEOs – they will have to do the same as Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley invited all three CEOs to meet him on April 15. 

Also, as it turned out, Facebook uses free labor – our working hours to keep the platform running. If one spends one hour per day using Facebook, it makes 365 hours per year – 15 working days. And you get nothing for it, while Mark Zuckerberg earns millions of dollars on ads.

Facebook Inc. is to shut down and delete all the data related to the third-party data, but the largest advertisers are able to use users’ data for ad targeting
