Facebook sued for 'losing control' of users’ data

Facebook is being sued for "Losing control" of the data of about a million users in England and Wales. Facebook told BBC News there was "No evidence" UK or EU users' data had been transferred to Cambridge Analytica. Cambridge Analytica's app on Facebook had harvested the data of people who interacted with it - and that of friends who had not given consent. A Facebook spokesman said: "The Information Commissioner's Office investigation into these issues, which included seizing and interrogating Cambridge Analytica's servers, found no evidence that any UK or EU users' data was transferred by Dr [Aleksandr] Kogan to Cambridge Analytica." A similar mass legal action was filed against Facebook in October, by the group Facebook You Owe Us, represented by law firm Milberg London.
