Facebook Says Cambridge Analytica may have Gained 37M More Users’ Data than Previously Reported

(From UPI)

Facebook announced Wednesday that information of up to 87 million people may have been improperly shared with data firm Cambridge Analytica.

The social media company said that of the 87 million accounts affected, the data of an estimated 70,623,350 Americans may have been accessed by the British data firm without their knowledge, accounting for 81.6 percent of all those affected by the breach.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify in the House next week about how the social networking site protects user data, following the breach which was previously estimated to have affected 50 million people worldwide.
