Facebook Will Pay Fine For Cambridge Analytica Scandal

LONDON (AP) – Facebook agreed to pay a fine of 500,000 pounds ($ 643,000) in a cause of privacy arising from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, although it will not accept any responsibility.

The Office of the Information Commissioner of Great Britain had imposed the fine after concluding that Facebook processed the personal information of users unfairly by exposing it without informed consent to its use by app creators.

Facebook tried hard to highlight that the Office had not concluded that the data had been transferred to Cambridge Analytica, which among its clients had the election campaign of Donald Trump in 2016.

Facebook legal advisor Harry Kinmonth said the company has "made major changes" to the platform since then and is "significantly restricting what app creators can access."
