Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admits ‘mistakes’ were made in protecting user data
Mark Zuckerberg has broken his silence on Cambridge Analytica and admitted that Facebook “made mistakes” in protecting its users’ data.
“There’s more to do, and we need to step up and do it,” he said in a statement released this morning.
Last week Facebook suspended Cambridge Analytica over allegations that it kept improperly obtained user data after telling the social media giant it had been deleted.
“This was a breach of trust between Kogan, Cambridge Analytica and Facebook,” he said.
“But it was also a breach of trust between Facebook and the people who share their data with us and expect us to protect it. We need to fix that.”
More to come.
