Mark Zuckerberg gave an interview to CNN and said that if the data of the users are not protected, the Facebook isn’t fit to serve the people. He even apologized for the same, but the story is far from over. The political debates are heating up in every corner including India.
Cambridge Analytica got data access from Aleksandr Kogan through an app developed by Kogan. Even though both of them provided certificates to Facebook that the alleged data have been deleted, but media reports have suggested that it hasn’t been done yet.
