The Justice Department and the FBI are investigating Cambridge Analytica, the now-defunct political-data firm at the center of Facebook's data privacy scandal, according to The New York Times. But the committee believes that these answers do not provide adequate detail and have called on the company for further explanation of certain issues. Check back for updates.
Ime Archibong, vice president of product partnerships, says that if any evidence is found that the suspended apps or other apps have misused data, they will be banned. "We have large teams of internal and external experts working hard to investigate these apps as quickly as possible". As an aftermath of the instigation by Cambridge Analytica scandal, this move was effectuated to ensure that the site is secure and there's no breach of user's private data.
These points included Cambridge Analytica, dark ads, Facebook Connect, the amount spent by Russian Federation on United Kingdom ads on the platform, data collection across the web, budgets for investigations, and that shows general discrepancies between Schroepfer and Zuckerberg's respective testimonies, he said. It is interesting then to note then that Apple is quietly beginning to enforce long-standing and long-ignored rules in the Apple iOS developer's agreement and App Store Review Guidelines that, except for two limited exceptions, precluded an app publisher from sharing information collected from users on their phones with third parties.
The social network will be conducting a "thorough investigation" to check whether these apps have misused user data or not.

Facebook has failed to fully answer 39 questions submitted by United Kingdom members of parliament that aim to explore the social network's approach to data privacy and fake news, according to the parliamentary committee charged with investigating the matter.
"We suspended the myPersonality app nearly a month ago because we believe that it may have violated Facebook's policies", Mr Archibong said on Monday in response to an AFP inquiry. But right after the announcement wherein the social media leviathan suspends 200 apps, Facebook once again finds itself in hot waters.
The question over how many clicks or swipes it takes for users to change their privacy settings was also dodged.
