Parliament President Antonio Tajani wrote to Zuckerberg saying the 2.7 million European Union citizens affected by the data sharing scandal deserved a full explanation from him, after he spent 10 hours being grilled by U.S. lawmakers last week.

Cambridge Analytica has been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks after news broke out in March that the firm had illicitly harvested a massive amount of personal data of millions of Facebook users.

Kaiser wrote in evidence to the House of Commons" digital culture, media and sport select committee: "The Kogan/GSR datasets and questionnaires were not the only Facebook-connected questionnaires and datasets which Cambridge Analytica used.

Under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act of 2008, Facebook could be fined between $1,000 and $5,000 each time a person's image is used without their consent.

"The closing of the API started something called the 'Walled Garden, ' which means you can't buy raw data, you can only purchase advertising that uses the data that they have on file in order to target you", said Kaiser.

In a YouGov Galaxy survey commissioned by News Corp, 62% of respondents said they did not trust Facebook, 80% fear their "identity could be stolen" and 84% said they should be able to opt out of having their private information stored.
