Find out if your facebook data was shared with Cambridge Analytica

With the outbreak of the Cambridge Analytica scandal that stole from Facebook personal data of millions of people,there has been a growing fear among the large user base about the integrity of their data. To put an end to this unrest Facebook has released a help page on Facebook that will notify users of whether either they or someone from their friends list had logged into to the malicious app This Is Your Digital Life .

Facebook in order to make this information more accessible has put a link to this page at the top of people’s news feed so as to ensure that more people are aware of weather their data was compromised or not.

This is how the page looks like –

The green box states that me & my Friends personal details were not shared with Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook as a company at this point is facing a lot of heat for letting something as big as this happen right under people’s noses,Mark Zuckerburg has been asked to testify before congress so that the democrats and legal officials get to know of the companies future plans to rectify the errors made. A huge point of discussion during this meeting was if regulations were to be implemented in order to regulate online content,to which Mark agreed but how far this would develop is to be seen.

There were some tough question asked to Mr.Zuckerburg about sensitive things or the inner workings of the company that Mark hesitated to answer. A lot of questions still remain unanswered. As of now,Facebook is trying to inform the users of how much damage has taken place and is rolling out new measures to remove apps that behaved in the same way as the rouge app.

Facebook is putting similar apps under tight scrutiny in order to find such rouge apps. Two apps have been banned after an audit.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

      Hello, sounds cool to me, however the website link you provided isn’t loading up. Also it is not HTTPS enabled. As long as your website has the same topics and domain corresponding to ours, I surely would add backlinks to it. However, as of now, I am not able to view your website. Will let you know when it is accessible 🙂
      Regards,
