Facebook Unlikely to Compensate EU Users Affected by Cambridge Analytica Scandal

Facebook said Wednesday that it is unlikely to provide compensation to around 2.7 million European users who had been affected by the data privacy scandal involving political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica.

The company says that while it was clear that there was a breach of trust, no bank account details, credit card information or national ID numbers had been shared, and added that the app developer involved in the data breach had sold information on US users, not EU users, to Cambridge Analytica.

It is said that the statement was made in response to questions of EU lawmakers that were not satisfactorily answered by CEO Mark Zuckerberg during the meeting at the European Parliament.
