Mark Zuckerberg will no more stay silent on the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the “#deletefacebook” movement. After a weeks’ time, Mark had decided to reply to Brian Acton’s Tweet on Twitter.
Facebook has pledged to take serious steps on the scandal and to protect user data. Mark has also claimed that he is ultimately responsible for whatever has happened.
Marks states on his Facebook Post;
“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you,”
He has also stated that,
“I’ve been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
The news broke stating, “Cambridge Analytica, which ties to President Donald Trump’s campaign was noticed to access user data repeatedly from 50 million Facebook users without their knowledge.”
Facebook states the data was initially accessed by a professor for academic purpose abiding the rules of the firm. But later it was found that the data were transferred to third parties which included Cambridge Analytica in violation of Facebook policies.
This eventually led to a drop of $50 billion on Facebook’s stock price. Politicians have called for Mark Zuckerberg to testify on the loss. Facebook is under lawsuits from investors and users as well as “#deletefacebook” movement. Hope Zuckerberg ends up in taking effective measures to fix this issue.
