    Facebook said the collection was legitimate. So what's the issue?

    Cambridge did it on the sly. They promised to dump the data and then didn’t .

    They are maintaining that they did. All I see flying around are accusations without evidence. I'm old school. I like evidence.


    ""The event is being described as a data breach of the social media platform, though Facebook disputes that characterization, saying Kogan “gained access to this information in a legitimate way and through the proper channels” before misusing it.

    Facebook became aware of the activity by late 2015, and ordered the data destroyed by everyone Kogan had shared it with

    . According to Facebook, Cambridge Analytica claimed to have complied, but Facebook says it became aware this week that “not all data was deleted.” Cambridge Analytica claims it did delete the data according to Facebook’s request."
