25 Aug Facebook Bans Second Cambridge Analytica App
Facebook announced this week that it has banned another third-party quiz app called “myPersonality” for sharing user information with researchers and companies “with only limited protections in place”.
The app, which was linked to the University of Cambridge’s Psychometric Centre, had reportedly been active even before 2012 and no explanation was given as to why Facebook only acted on it now.
The app’s creator David Stillwell said that there had been no misuse of personal data, and it looks to him like the ban appears to be “cosmetic”. Facebook however, says that they are banning the app due to the developer’s refusal to submit to an audit.
