GSR developed a app that reportedly collected data from people who signed up to use the app as well as information from their Facebook friends, without the explicit approval of all involved.

Apparently, even the 200 suspended apps are expected to be further investigated via interviews and RFI requests.

There has been a lot of attention in the media lately with respect to the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica issue and its fall-out (including today's coverage of the announcement that Facebook suspended nearly 200 apps pending a more complete investigation in whether any user data was misused).

Three million user accounts have reportedly been compromised in a new Facebook data leak incident. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook announced that the investigation began in March itself and since then they looked into thousands of apps and suspended 200 of them.

The question over how many clicks or swipes it takes for users to change their privacy settings was also dodged.

As a part of a wider investigation, myPersonality app website has now been taken down by Facebook, and the publicly available credentials are non-functional.

These points included Cambridge Analytica, dark ads, Facebook Connect, the amount spent by Russian Federation on United Kingdom ads on the platform, data collection across the web, budgets for investigations, and that shows general discrepancies between Schroepfer and Zuckerberg's respective testimonies, he said.
