The psychology behind Facebook data breach        Video        BBC News        4 April 2018

 

Facebook has said it now believes

up to 87 million people's data

was improperly shared

with the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica

- many more than previously disclosed.

 

The BBC has been told

that about 1.1 million of them are UK-based.

 

The overall figure had been previously quoted

 as being 50 million

by the whistleblower Christopher Wylie.

 

The details were revealed in a blog

by the tech firm's chief technology officer,

Mike Schroepfer.

 

The BBC has also learned

that Facebook now estimates

that about 305,000 people had installed

the This Is Your Digital Life quiz

that had made the data-harvesting possible.

 

The figure previously suggested

had been 270,000.

who worked for data firm Cambridge Analytica,

Cambridge Analytica

claims to use data 'to change audience behaviour'.

 

But now a whistleblower, Christopher Wylie,

has come forward to expose the company's practices.

attracted support from the then Breitbart editor, Steve Bannon,

and investment from the billionaire Robert Mercer

before obtaining help from the Cambridge professor Aleksandr Kogan

to harvest tens of millions of Facebook profiles
