State AGs press Facebook over Cambridge Analytica scandal
A coalition of 37 state attorneys general are urging Facebook to provide more answers on how Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained the data of 50 million Facebook users. “These revelations raise many serious questions concerning Facebook’s policies and practices, and the processes in place to ensure they are followed,” the bipartisan group of attorneys general wrote. “We need to know that users can trust Facebook. With the information we have now, our trust has been broken.”
The state officials pressed Facebook to answer specific questions on how clear terms of service are, what types of information third parties were able to collect and what data safeguards the company has in place.
