Many advertisers privately say that are fine sticking with Facebook but they are monitoring the situation closely, the Journal reported. The company has lost more than $50 billion in market value since the allegations surfaced.

On Sunday, the controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica began to engulf to Britain's 2016 Brexit referendum.

Two senators also asked the Federal Trade Commission, the leading USA consumer regulator, to investigate if other firms improperly obtained user data from Facebook users. Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg signed the ad.

As with Twitter, you can take control of Facebook.

But he warned the app used by Cambridge Analytica was likely not the only one to have had access to a large amount of Facebook users' information before the company tightened up its procedures. What Facebook did was worse - it sold access to your data. I don't think anyone was convinced that Facebook is telling us everything it knows, nor did the company present much of a plan for protecting consumers moving forward.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is scrutinizing the connections between President Donald Trump's campaign and the data mining firm Cambridge Analytica.

Reps. Greg Walden of OR and Frank Pallone of New Jersey say in a statement the "latest revelations regarding Facebook's use and security of user data raises many serious consumer protection concerns".

You'll also be able to see a list of the topics you've shown interest in and ads you've clicked on. "I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again". "And we need to find this space", Disini said.

Amid the entire Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook is now being questioned about allegedly collecting phone numbers and text messages from Android devices. But participants unknowingly gave researchers access to the profiles of their Facebook friends, allowing them to collect data from millions more users.

The ongoing Cambridge Analytica scandal has left Facebook reeling as the enormo social media service attempts to navigate the fallout over the alleged theft of data on 50 million users. "We have a basic responsibility to protect people's data".

Note you can not get rid of an email address, so I use Leemail, a specific program that allows me to see when Facebook or others sell or otherwise share my email address. Facebook hedged during its early days in 2007 over a controversial advertising program called Beacon that did not alert users it was sharing their activity, and it did so again in its response to Russian bots hijacking Facebook ad software during the Trump campaign in 2016.

While both parties have denied explicit wrongdoing, Facebook and Cambridge Analytica are facing whistleblower claims this data was used to support Donald Trump's 2016 presidential election campaign, with the latter firm also being said to have yielded influence over other democratic votes including the European Union referendum.
