UK MPs still not satisfied with evidence submitted by Facebook

Black and white portrait of Mark Zuckerberg

The Justice Department and FBI are investigating Cambridge Analytica, the now-shuttered political data firm that was once used by the Trump campaign and came under scrutiny for harvesting data of millions of users, The New York Times reported on Tuesday. The academic said the information had only been used to create "brand reports" and "survey extender tools" and that he had not violated Twitter's policies.

Facebook is suspending about 200 apps that it believes may have misused data. They are great fun and can be advantageous in many ways.

Mark Zuckerberg has once again rejected the advances of the United Kingdom parliamentary committee that are probing the misuse of Facebook data and how the firm slurps user info.

Suspected terrorists attack Riau Police headquarters with sharp weapons, 2 cops injured
The militants also rampantly shot at the headquarters, according to national police spokesman Senior Commissioner Muhammad Iqbal. The church and earlier police station attacks were likely motivated by the arrest of JAD leaders, authorities said.

As a direct response to the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, Facebook recently launched a bounty program that rewards people who find and report any data misuse by app developers on its platforms. Whistleblower Christopher Wylie will testify at the hearing entitled "Cambridge Analytica and the Future of Data Privacy".

The London-based publication said third parties could easily. Its psychographic modeling techniques underpinned Cambridge's work for the Trump campaign in 2016. Former officials with Cambridge Analytica was not immediately available to comment.

While it's unclear whether Zuckerberg will appear before the United Kingdom government, either via video or in real life, MPs are studying Facebook's answers to their questions. With that password, virtually anyone could have access to a trove of information on around 3 million Facebook users.

According to PEOPLE magazine, the royal family will create Thomas' very own coat of arms, which will have a very personal touch. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".

Facebook has said Mark Zuckerberg has no plans to come to the United Kingdom to give evidence to parliament despite the threat of a formal summons, prompting frustrated MPs inquiring into the Cambridge Analytica data breach to ask if he would appear via video link instead.

About 270,000 people downloaded Kogan's personality-quiz app, which shared information on the people and their friends that then was improperly passed to Cambridge Analytica. The Facebook CEO was summoned for the company's recent data privacy scandals by the UK Parliament, and he has already missed his deadline by three days.
