Now, Christopher Wylie names JD(U), says Cambridge Analytica did caste surveys

"It's time to make our privacy tools easier to find", Facebook officials said in the post detailing the changes, which are unlikely to satisfy critics who want major reforms in the way the social media giant handles the data of its more than 2 billion users.

The 270,000 people on Facebook who shared their data on the app unwittingly gave the app permission to collect information about 50 million other users without their consent through their friends network on Facebook.

Wylie is appearing before British lawmakers to testify about his role at Cambridge Analytica, which is under fire after Wylie alleged that it obtained data from millions of Facebook profiles without users knowledge in an effort to aid US political campaigns, including President Donald Trump's.

"When you look at the accumulation of evidence", he said, "I think it would be completely unreasonable to come to any other conclusion than this must be coordination, this must be a common objective plan".

The government on Wednesday asked Facebook Inc to clarify whether the company or any of its associates or partners that has access to user data had engaged in the manipulation of elections, according to a statement issued by the ministry of electronics and IT. "But they do have offices there, they do have staff there", the 28-year-old had said on Tuesday. It has also sought details on whether it the data has been used to manipulate the Indian electoral process. "So, yes, I don't think they should remain in business".

He said: "I wouldn't say it's just because of Donald Trump, but Donald Trump makes it click in your head that it has a much wider impact". "We enjoy the benefits of electricity, despite the fact that it can literally kill you".

Tinubu's Absence: Calls for my resignation is history - Oyegun
Buhari said he is having a change of heart because he doesn't want the party's activities to be faulted by any court of law. It is the second meeting the party will be holding in less than a month, following a previous meeting on February 27.

This data was allegedly used to influence the outcomes of the Brexit poll and the United States presidential election.

Both the governing Bharatiya Janata Party and the opposition Indian National Congress deny hiring Cambridge Analytica's Indian counterpart for election campaigns and flung accusations at their rivals instead.

Alexander Nix, former chief executive of Cambridge Analytica, speaks at the 2017 Web Summit in Lisbon.

The company at the centre of the scandal is Cambridge Analytics, a consulting firm set up to convert the data of Facebook users into tailored psychological profiles which could then be used to target them with customised political advertisements. Nix is scheduled to appear on April 17. "This entire exercise on part of the government may assuage public concern but will not solve the underlying problem of the absence of a legal protection for data protection", he added. The action comes a day after the whistleblower, Christopher Wylie, revealed that his former employers worked with the Congress in India on some regional projects. "But as a point of observation, one of the weak points that I've seen - again, this is an empathetic criticism - is the lack of technical people.They have had to ask me a lot of questions that a database engineer would not ask".

Wylie said he succeeded Muresan on some of CA's projects, but did not know about his death when he joined the organisation.

"I am incredibly remorseful for my role in setting it up". "Mr Mark Zuckerberg you better note the observation of the IT Minister of India. But what's done is done".
