Facebook co-founder and chief executive officer, Mark Zuckerberg has apologized for a data privacy scandal. In a message published in nine major British and U.S. newspapers yesterday, Zuckerberg said the incident is a breach of trust.
Apologizing that Facebook did not do more at that time, he said the company is already taking steps to prevent similar problems. British-based firm Cambridge Analytica allegedly gained unauthorized access to the personal data of over 50 million Facebook users. Information on personal preferences and behavioral patterns was reportedly used for Donald Trump’s campaign to become US President.
