Sooo, Was Your Facebook Data Stolen?

posted by Robin - 

Facebook sure has been going through some messes lately. Besides the fact that it somehow knows how I feel about things politically (that I absolutely try not to throw out their publicly) and the overall sense that humanity is doomed...we've also got the hullabaloo of Cambridge Analytica having access to our data.

According to Gizmodo, there's a way to know if your data was stolen:

"If your data wasn’t stolen by Cambridge Analytica, it will appear like the newsfeed on the left. But if your data was obtained by Cambridge Analytica, it will look like the screen on the right."

They go on, "Facebook has come under intense scrutiny over the past month after it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica obtained the private information of 50 million Facebook users. That number was revised to roughly 87 million last week, but Cambridge Analytica wasn’t the only company that was misusing Facebook data.

To make things even messier, Facebook has suspended at least two more research companies over the weekend. Facebook booted a data analytics company called CubeYou for misusing data from personality quizzes. And it also kicked out the Canadian analytics firm AggregateIQ. The Canadian government has subsequently launched an investigation into AggregateIQ."
