Re: Secured
Now that some of this dubiousness has been brought to light, I wonder how many people will terminate their Facebook accounts. The guess is ... not many at all.

Re: Secured
Yeah, but does that mean that a political data analytics firm should be able to mine your data without you knowing, because one of your friends did a dumb personality test? That seems like a reach to me.

Re: Secured
"Ethically dubious" pretty much describes the whole Facebook model, doesn't it? I'm not a FB user (shocking, I know), but from what I remember the terms and conditions state that anything that gets posted to Facebook belongs to Facebook.

Re: Secured
The app they used mined the data of all the friends in a person's friend list who answered the initial personality test, without their knowledge and without them talking the same test themselves. That might not be illegal per see, but man, it's ethically dubious...

I'm not sure how the Cambridge Analytica affair merits security coverage. Facebook's business model is based on the kind data use that apparently is at the heart of the CA stuff.
