Cambridge Analytica admitted the use of Facebook data

The British advisory company Cambridge Analytica pleaded guilty and was fined by a London court

The British advisory that worked for the electoral campaign of the American president Donald Trump accepted to have reused information on personal data that it extracted of Facebook.

The social network admitted that Cambridge Analytica used an application to collect private data from 87 million users without their knowledge.

The company also pleaded guilty to violating the British media regulator’s order to disclose information it had about a US professor, David Carroll, who asked to know what data the company had about him and how they had obtained them.

The hearing, held in the small courtroom in the suburbs of London, provided data on a case that shook Facebook’s reputation.

Cambridge Analytica managed to collect the equivalent of 81 billion printed pages of data about the users of the social networking giant.
