Minami Tamaki LLP announced earlier this month that it was investigating allegations that Cambridge Analytica improperly acquired private information from tens of millions of Facebook users without their knowledge or consent.
In response to public outcry regarding the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook posted information on users’ news feeds notifying users of whether their personal data was accessed.
Facebook users can also check whether their personal data was obtained by Cambridge Analytica by visiting this Facebook page.
Users who visit this support page while logged in to Facebook will receive a message regarding whether their personal information was shared with Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook and Cambridge Analytica continue to face scrutiny in the wake of this data exposure. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was called to Capitol Hill to testify in front of Congress regarding Cambridge Analytica, privacy practices, and government regulation.
