24 Jul Facebook Suspends and Investigates Analytics Firm for Data Misuse
Facebook this week had reportedly suspended and conducted an investigation into Boston-based analytics firm Crimson Hexagon which may be in violation of the social network’s surveillance policies.
However, Facebook says that the firm, which offers consumer insights and has links with government agencies around the world, did not improperly obtain any data according to the evidence.
Nevertheless, Facebook said that it does not allow developers to build surveillance tools using information from Facebook or Instagram. The social network added that they take the allegations seriously and suspended the apps during the investigation.
