Facebook Suspends 200 Apps as Part of Their Data Privacy Investigation

The Infinite Brief
At least 200 apps have been suspended from Facebook amidst a data privacy investigation launched by Mark Zuckerberg after the Cambridge Analytica scandal in March.

On Monday, Facebook announced its internal investigation was in “Full swing” – with teams delving into thousands of apps that are connected to Facebook, according to a statement released by Ime Archibong, vice president of Facebook’s product partnerships.

Archibong said the second phase of the investigation involves looking into whether there is evidence that the suspended apps or other apps misused data.

If an app misled users about how their data was being used, it could be banned from Facebook.

Once the second phase is complete, Facebook users will be notified via a Facebook website if their personal data was jeopardized.
