Facebook to Notify Users How Data Was Shared

Some 87 million Facebook users will begin receiving information this week on how their personal data may have been shared.

Users will reportedly get a detailed message pertaining to the Cambridge Analytica scandal through their news feeds.

The notice, titled “Protecting Your Information,” will provide a link to see what apps they use and what information they have shared with those apps. If they want, the users can shut off apps individually or turn off third-party access to their apps completely.

Meanwhile, Facebook is in damage-control mode, as CEO Mark Zuckerberg has acknowledged that he made a “huge mistake” in failing to take a broad enough view of the social media giant’s responsibility to users.

He began two days of congressional testimony Tuesday, with both hearings focusing on the use and protection of Facebook user data.
