Facebook has launched a tool you can now use to see if your personal data and/or your Facebook friends’ data was shared in the now infamous Cambridge Analytica debacle.
You have likely read or seen (many) reports on a recent Facebook controversy regarding the exploitation of Facebook user data. Facebook states this was not a data breach in the traditional sense, as in hackers breaking into their network, which seems to be accurate. However, Facebook is doing very little (if anything) to combat abuses by third party applications (think quizzes or games) that are also gathering and sharing your data. Hopefully this latest controversy will lead to change.
