Cambridge Analytica ordered to release data on United States voter

Students React to Facebook Data Breach Cambridge Analytica ordered to release data on US voter

Three-quarters of Facebook users have remained faithful to the platform despite the privacy scandals, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

"We are aware of recent media reports concerning Cambridge Analytica's future but whether or not the people behind the company decide to fold their operation, a continued refusal to engage with the ICO will potentially breach an Enforcement Notice and that then becomes a criminal matter", Elizabeth Denham, the information commissioner, said in a statement. According to documents made public on social media in March, SCL India has regional offices in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Cuttack, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata, Patna and Pune.

Cambridge Analytica might have come to the end, filing for bankruptcy and shutting itself down, but that hasn't marked the end of the company's troubles.

The UK's Information Commissioner's Office is backing an American academic's effort to obtain his personal data from SCL Group, which includes Cambridge Analytica.

Cambridge Analytica advised US President Donald Trump's election campaign, building psychographic profiles of the electorate to help micro-target voters with advertising in key swing states. While the original data was deleted, Cambridge Analytica kept derivatives of that data. "Nobody's outraged on a visceral level", Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities told Reuters.

Richardson said he already spoken with retired judges about the process of preparing a potential trial panel. House and Senate leaders announced late Thursday that a 30-day special session would begin May 18.

Reuters and Ipsos on Sunday released the results of a poll conducted in April querying U.S. social media users' habits a month after the dodgy data revelations.

The Angus Reid poll revealed that three-quarters of Canadians would change the way they use Facebook as the scandal continues to unfold. Facebook banned the political data analysis firm in March, and said it believes data from up to 87 million people was "improperly shared" with the firm. Some 78 percent of Facebook users said they knew how to change their current privacy settings compared to 65 percent of Instagram users and 58 percent of Twitter users.

Thirty-nine percent said they have changed their privacy settings on Facebook since the Cambridge Analytica revelation, the highest rate among all platforms.

But after Facebook rallied following blow-out first-quarter earnings, sentiment on the stock seems to have turned around.
