    Yup...there is a hidden camera admission that I saw on cable news. We can expect this to get bigger and uglier!

    So all this "collecting" happened in 2014. And Facebook says they collected the data in a legitimate way. Nothing was illegal. Another epic OP fail.

    You left wing whackos really need therapy..

    "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."
