The ICO’s investigation found that between 2007 and 2014, Facebook processed the personal information of users unfairly by allowing application developers access to their information without sufficiently clear and informed consent, and allowing access even if users had not downloaded the app, but were simply ‘friends’ with people who had.
Facebook also failed to keep the personal information secure because it failed to make suitable checks on apps and developers using its platform.
Cambridge Analytica helped screw, the American people (well I guess people everywhere got screwed.)
harvested the Facebook data of up to 87 million people worldwide, without their knowledge.
