I had an app developed that 2.8 million people took in 48 hours. We got all the data.

Did FA with it :-)

"Michael Corleone: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.

Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t have men killed!

Michael Corleone: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?"

Man with pink hair and points of view decides that the system he help built unfairly pigeon holes people and creates a video to help himself express why :)

Suppose the less rude/arrogant position is to say fair play for exposing it, but I doubt the average person is able to apply enough scepticism to what's put in front of them.

There's not going to be an overseeing ministry of truth so I guess we'll just have to put up with the noise.

If Zuck watched John Kennedy question that utterly incompetent nominee for a federal judgeship, he knows he better bring his A game.

I loved the way Kennedy with an almost utterly flat, matter-of-fact tone and simple yes/no fact-based questions completely destroyed that guy.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has been called on by a parliamentary committee to give evidence about the use of personal data by Cambridge Analytica.

...

Damian Collins, the chair of the Commons inquiry into fake news, accused Facebook of "misleading" the committee.

On Monday, the US senator Ron Wyden sent Zuckerberg a detailed list of questions related to the breach, with a demand for answers by 13 April. Two members of the Senate judiciary committee, Democrat Amy Klobuchar and Republican John Kennedy, called for hearings with the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter and Google.

“It’s time for Mark Zuckerberg to stop hiding behind his Facebook page,” said the Conservative MP Damian Collins, chair of the digital, culture, media and sport select committee.

Referencing the government’s request for Facebook’s auditors to leave Cambridge Analytica’s offices, Collins tweeted: “These investigations need to be undertaken by the proper authorities.”

The three social media companies testified in Washington last fall, following the revelation that their platforms had been used by foreign agents seeking to illegally influence the US presidential election. All three companies sent their general counsels, a move that was criticized at the time. It is unlikely that Zuckerberg will be able to avoid congressional questioning a second time.

Ars Technica reports that Facebook has been requesting access to contacts, SMS data, and call history on Android devices to improve its friend recommendation algorithm and distinguish between business contacts and your true personal friendships. Facebook appears to be gathering this data through its Messenger application, which often prompts Android users to take over as the default SMS client. Facebook has, at least recently, been offering an opt-in prompt that prods users with a big blue button to “continuously upload” contact data, including call and text history. It’s not clear when this prompt started appearing in relation to the historical data gathering, and whether it has simply been opt-in the whole time. Either way, it’s clearly alarmed some who have found call history data stored on Facebook’s servers.

Facebook's CEO apologised for the Cambridge Analytica scandal with ads in multiple US and British newspapers on Sunday, saying the social media platform doesn't deserve to hold personal information if it can't protect it.

THIS is why Zuck is trying to contain the dumpster fire in EU.

Ah... I wonder how much of their data comes from Facebook. I've found their demographic data (age, education, income) ring true with other data, but their "interests" clustering is pretty random and mostly useless in my (limited) experience.
