- 50 million Facebook profiles mined for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach
- The data analyst firm that worked with Trump's electoral campaign and the Brexit campaign mined millions of Facebook accounts of US voters, and used them to build a powerful software program to influence choices at the ballot box. A whistleblower has revealed how Cambridge Analytica used personal information in 2014 to build a system that had the ability to profile US voters. Christopher Wylie who worked with a Cambridge University academic says “We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people’s profiles. And built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons. That was the basis the entire company was built on.”
