New Review for Third-Party Apps on Facebook
04 May, 2018, 14:21
This week, one of the third-party developers, Cambridge Analytica, announced it will shut down and enter bankruptcy proceedings in the United Kingdom.
After the announcement, Britain's data regulator said it would continue civil and criminal investigations of the firm and will pursue "individuals and directors as appropriate" despite the shutdown.
Cambridge Analytica did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He acknowledged that tighter regulation of data is inevitable, but otherwise came away relatively unscathed - Facebook shares rose after his testimony.
It would be impossible to ever estimate how successful Cambridge Analytica, SCL Elections, and Global Science Research were at converting masses of data into votes; however, these events show us some of the more risky effects of powerful computing technology we have developed.
Cambridge Analytica said on Wednesday that it had been the subject of "numerous unfounded accusations" and had been "vilified" for activities that were both legal and accepted as a "standard component of online advertising in both the political and commercial arenas".
Cambridge Analytica also said the results of an independent investigation it had commissioned, which it released on Wednesday, contradicted assertions made by former employees and contractors about its acquisition of Facebook data. "Americans are currently helpless to stop the massive flows of their personal information now regularly fed to Google, Facebook, ISPs and many others".

Allegations of the improper use of data for 87 million Facebook users by Cambridge Analytica, which was hired by President Donald Trump's 2016 U.S. election campaign, has hurt the shares of the world's biggest social network and prompted multiple official investigations in the United States and Europe.
Emerdata has no website, but its listing on Companies House says it is engaged in "data processing, hosting and related activities". SCL Group has also announced its closure. "The investigations into their work are vital", said the committee's chair Damian Collins.
The company forecasted a midpoint of $52.5 billion in revenue for the June quarter, beating analyst expectations of $51.6 billion. Heading into earnings, investors were hopeful that growth in that segment could help offset the cooling global smartphone market.
