Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, said Facebook should testify before a Senate committee to explain why Facebook users weren't aware that their personal data was being exploited.

Facebook has come under fire for Russian trolls influencing the last presidential election and for revelations about Cambridge Analytica's surreptitious tactics. You can also remove or report an app by clicking on the concerned app.

It stems from claims over the harvesting of personal data - and whether it was used during Donald Trump's USA presidential campaign or the Brexit referendum.

He said the social network planned to conduct an investigation of thousands of apps that have used Facebook's platform, restrict developer access to data, and give members a tool that lets them to disable access to their Facebook data more easily.

"The company (CA) believed that the data had been obtained in line with Facebook's terms of service and data protection laws", Tayler said.

Fear and speculation snowballed and somewhere in the mix, Cambridge Analytica went from being a cleverly-marketed data analysis company to a digital Svengali capable of masterminding election outcomes in the United States and overseas.

The crisis has renewed questions about Facebook's ability to protect the privacy of its users while also exploiting their personal details to fuel its lucrative advertising business. You'll have to contact the app individually and ask for your data to be removed. You can control which app has access and what type of information they can have access to.

Following the data breach there are calls for people to leave the social networking giant. But the campaign has denied using the firm's data, saying it relied on the Republic National Committee for its voter information.

He apologised for the firm's involvement, but said it had licensed the data from a research company, led by an academic, that "had not received consent from most respondents".

The scandal surrounding Facebook, the data mining firm Cambridge Analytica and the mishandling of people's private information is hitting close to home for Mark Zuckerberg. "Moving forward, if we remove an app for misusing data, we will tell everyone who used it", Facebook said.

The public tends to get numb to this steady drumbeat of bad news, says brand strategist Rachel Brand. Zuckerberg issued a warning to developers of apps that don't comply with an audit.

Most users don't think too much about third-party apps. Lawsuits from shareholders and Facebook users have also been filed.

Wondering why Facebook seems to be taking baby steps to address the biggest scandal in its history?

The first thing you should know is that when it comes to sharing information online, that ship has mostly sailed. While there's no sign of a Facebook exodus so far, the possibility presents yet another threat to the company. The good news is, you won't be providing any new information in the near future. You can see if they are right by clicking 'Your information'. It has also claimed responsibility for Trump's 2016 win, though political insiders have pushed back on that assertion.

With true friends, the more you learn about each other the more you like, trust and want to spend time with each other.
