Mark Zuckerberg: ‘Yes,’ Cambridge Analytica Took My Personal Facebook Data Too
— Evan McMurry (@evanmcmurry) April 11, 2018
In Mark Zuckerberg‘s second day of testimony on the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the Facebook CEO said he was among the 87 million people who had his information stolen by the consultancy firm.
Zuckerberg is meeting with the House Energy and Commerce Committee today, and Representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA) pressed him on whether he would change Facebook’s business model as part of his new measures for protecting user privacy. Eshoo also asked Zuckerberg if his personal data was sold to “malicious third parties” as a result of Cambridge Analytica’s data-harvest, and his answer was “yes.”
In terms of changing Facebook’s business model, Zuckerberg said he wasn’t sure what Eshoo meant by her question, though she hinted that she wasn’t going to let that topic go.
