Facebook Users To Find Out Today If Their Data Was Improperly Shared


Facebook users will find out from today whether their data was taken without them knowing.

87 million people – including 45 thousand in Ireland – whose info might have been shared with Cambridge Analytica will get a message in their newsfeed.

The British firm’s accused of misusing the data to try and influence elections.

Meanwhile, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is apparently shutting down his Facebook account – in protest over the data privacy scandal.

He’s reportedly emailed USA Today, claiming the social media firm profits from passing on the details of users who get nothing back.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg testifies before Congress tomorrow in the row about alleged data harvesting.
