Facebook Stock Sinks After Controversy Involving Data Firm Tied to Trump Campaign

"We need to get in there, we need to look at the databases, we need to look at the servers and understand how data was processed or deleted by Cambridge Analytica". The Trump campaign paid Cambridge roughly $6 million, according to federal election records, although officials have more recently played down that work.

Cambridge also earned $5.8 million from Sen.

Therrien says his ultimate goal is to ensure that the privacy rights of Canadian Facebook users are protected. Ted Cruz, won the Iowa caucus in 2016.

Reports in The Observer suggested that the information was used to target political advertising in the 2016 U.S. presidential election - something denied by CA.

Late Friday, Facebook said it would ban Cambridge Analytica, saying the company improperly obtained information from 270,000 people who downloaded a purported research app described as a personality test. Facebook first learned of the breach more than two years ago, but hasn't disclosed it until now. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee while legislators in Britain and the European Union also called for inquiries.

Facebook said it had hired a digital forensics firm to examine how the data leak occurred and to ensure that any data collected had been destroyed.

"If this data still exists, it would be a grave violation of Facebook's policies and an unacceptable violation of trust and the commitments these groups made".

Facebook is having its worst trading day since 2012 as details emerge about how a data mining company working for the Trump campaign improperly obtained and kept data on tens of millions of users during the 2016 election.

Jennifer Grygiel, a Syracuse University professor who studies social media, said the disclosures will increase pressure to regulate Facebook and other social media firms, already under scrutiny for allowing disinformation from Russian-directed sources to propagate.

Thompson said the "nefarious action" was done by the developers of the app that initially obtained the personal data.

"Facebook data was not used by Cambridge Analytica as part of the services it provided to the Donald Trump presidential campaign", a statement read.

Facebook Inc's shares fell more than 7% on Monday, wiping around $US40 billion ($NZ55 billion) off its market value, set for their biggest drop since September 2012, as investors anxious that new legislation could damage the company's lucrative advertising business.

"This is based on an idea called 'informational dominance, ' which is the idea that if you can capture every channel of information around a person and then inject content around them, you can change their perception of what's actually happening", Wylie said Monday on NBC's "Today".

Cambridge was backed by the conservative billionaire Richard Mercer, and at one point employed Stephen Bannon - later President Donald Trump's campaign chairman and White House adviser - as a vice president.
