How Facebook Users Are Responding To The Cambridge Analytica Scandal

But how do we like them IRL But how do we like them IRL

Wylie said SCL India has a database of 600 districts and seven lakh villages.

In a tweet accompanying the documents, Wylie likened the firm's work in India to "modern day colonialism". The document has the name of the Janata Dal (United). SCL India also assisted the party in understanding how to use the diverse findings. "That seems to be the reports that are coming from India".

Internet experts say India is extremely vulnerable to the misuse of personal data during elections.

"If you are going to pitch any big client, they require experience".

According to reports, CA used these data to "psychologically profile people and deliver material in favour of Donald Trump during the 2016 USA presidential elections", The Times of India reported.

The SCL India carried out research for a "major state party" in Rajasthan in 2003.

The SCL India, according to the tweeted document, helped clients to identify and target key groups within the population "to effectively influence their behaviour to realize a desired outcome".

"I believe their client was Congress".

He also revealed that CA has offices and employees working in India in different places. This is likely untrue. Rai says this is "absolutely false".

This is the harder part. But the image of party's poster at the London office of the Cambridge Analytica might escalate trouble for the beleaguered party.

"I don't remember a national project, but I know regionally", he added.

But both of these developments aren't hard evidence.

"I have worked mostly with candidates and not parties".




Christopher Wiley, who came forward with claims about use of Facebook data by Cambridge Analytica, testified before a British committee on Tuesday.

"They (Cambridge Analytica) worked extensively in India".

Did SCL help with any of Rai or OBI's campaigns? The documents say that the USA arm of the company, formed in June 2014, could participate as a vendor of technology as long as Nix, a Briton, was "recused from the substantive management of any such clients involved in United States elections".

What happened after that? "But they do have offices there, they do have staff there", the 28-year-old had said on Tuesday.

The JD (U) went on to win the 2010 state elections as part of an alliance with the NDA.

"The problem is not with one entity [such as Cambridge Analytica] but a system which allows it", Pahwa said, pointing out that there is too much data floating around. In his deposition, he also named the Congress party.

"They have reached out to the Congress party. It could [have been] in person, over email over phone or through a proposal", she stated in an interview.

Among the updates are tools to find, download and delete your Facebook data, as well as a simplified settings menu "accessible from a single place", Egan and Beringer said. Tyagi has denied it, but it's unlikely nevertheless.

The revelations by Wylie over the last few days have put Facebook in a precarious position since the data used by Cambridge Analytica was leaked from the social media company.

He attached three adjoining infographics that detail SCL's Indian operations and the year in which they took place.

He said India supports freedom of speech, expression and exchange of ideas on social media, "but any attempt, covert or overt, by the social media, including Facebook, of trying to influence India's electoral process through undesirable means will neither be appreciated nor be tolerated".

Apple chief executive Tim Cook has also hit out at Facebook's policies, describing users' privacy as a "human right". Either way, Indian users and voters will know soon enough.
