Facebook has not fully answered data privacy questions, say United Kingdom lawmakers

Developed by Cambridge University academics, myPersonality was revealed to have shared its collected data with 280 third-party researchers from prolific companies such as Facebook itself, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo.
Facebook suspended the app on April 7, after it accessed the "Big Five" personality scores of 3.1 million users, and two million status updates from over 150,000 users, including details about age, gender and relationship status from 4.3 million people.
The letter also included answers to the 39 questions the committee posed in its last letter, which included inquiries about Aleksandr Kogan's non-disclosure agreement, who's leading the Cambridge Analytica investigation, the storage of non-Facebook users' data and how many websites host Facebook Like buttons and Pixels. The growing use of social networking opened the door to the misuse of personal information via identity theft, cyberstalking, content-based image retrieval, privacy invasion, and more.
"To date, thousands of apps have been investigated and around 200 have been suspended, pending a thorough investigation into whether they did in fact misuse any data". The university says the app was created before the data set's controllers - David Stillwell and Michal Kosinski, at the University's Psychometrics Centre - joined the university. "It will show people if they or their friends installed an app that misused data before 2015 - just as we did for Cambridge Analytica". Archibong said that large teams of internal and external experts are working hard to investigate these apps as quickly as possible. However, this is yet another reminder that when you agree to sharing your data with one app, it is going to be mass circulated, ending up online.
Three million user accounts have reportedly been compromised in a new Facebook data leak incident. Were these 200 apps chosen simply because they requested or acquired user data, or because Facebook already has evidence or suspicion that they held onto and sold the data? What will the final count be? Facebook closed that loophole in 2014, but clearly wants to avoid another data privacy scandal. Ideally, Facebook's in-person inspections of these hundreds of app-makers will turn up the truth sooner rather than later. They mentioned that the committee found Schroepfer's responses to questions lacking and asked Zuckerberg to appear or the Facebook CEO will face the consequences.
It may be months or longer before we know for certain which of the 200 apps got access to our personal data.
"Cambridge Analytica may remain an organic user on our platform, in accordance with the Twitter Rules", the spokesperson added.
