Aleksandr Kogan, a social psychologist and lecturer at the University of Cambridge, developed an app in which respondents authorized access to their Facebook profiles and to those of their friends, allowing him to harvest data from as many as 87 million of its users. Clients of Cambridge Analytica have said the company had trouble delivering on its claims that its personality-profiling would help politicians win votes. Mr. Kogan said the data turned out to be of zero value to the company, and his app was less effective at targeting consumers than Facebook’s traditional advertising.
A researcher at the centre of a scandal over the alleged misuse of the data of nearly 100 million Facebook users said on Tuesday the work he did was useless for the sort of targeted adverts that would be needed to sway an election. Aleksandr Kogan, who worked for the University of Cambridge, is at the centre of a controversy over Cambridge Analytica's use of millions of users' data without their permission after it was hired by Donald Trump for his 2016 election campaign. Kogan said it was unlikely Cambridge Analytica had used the data in the Trump campaign, although he also said that its suspended CEO Alexander Nix had lied to a committee of British lawmakers about how the two worked together.
LONDON (AP) — Cambridge Analytica unleashed its counterattack against claims that it misused data from millions of Facebook accounts, saying Tuesday it is the victim of misunderstandings and inaccurate reporting that portrays the company as the evil villain in a James Bond movie.
Amid the ongoing fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal involving improperly handled Facebook Inc. member data, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has said on several occasions that the company hasn’t seen a business impact. When Facebook reports first-quarter earnings Wednesday, Zuckerberg will have to prove it for the first time. News of the Cambridge Analytica data usage broke in mid-March, which means any impact would be limited to about 20% of the reporting period — a significant amount of time but, as Zuckerberg has said, likely not enough to dramatically affect the financial results.
The View From Silicon Valley The most keenly anticipated quarterly earnings report in years for Facebook (FB) might give investors pause after the negative spin cycle of news out of Menlo Park, Calif. But when Facebook announces first-quarter results after markets close Wednesday, it could offer a respite and window of opportunity. The specter of Cambridge Analytica and regulation promise to loom large over future quarters, but a solid quarter could bump up shares, albeit temporarily. Stifel analyst Scott Devitt has forecast "moderately decelerating" revenue but does not expect a "material impact" to Facebook's ad business.

House Democrats met with Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie Tuesday and afterward implored Republicans to help them dig deeper into manipulation of personal information from millions of U.S. Facebook users and other data during the 2016 election.

Facebook Inc. set a lobbying record in the first quarter ahead of an uproar over the leak of data on millions of users’ without their permission. It also referred to "general discussions on data breach," without providing further details. Toward the end of the quarter, Facebook was hit by revelations that data on millions of users had been improperly obtained by Cambridge Analytica, a firm that worked on President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign.
BERLIN/FRANKFURT, April 20 (Reuters) - Facebook's attempt to limit fallout from a massive data breach hit trouble in Germany on Friday as a privacy watchdog opened a case against the social network and politicians accused its bosses of evasion. The social network has been at the centre of controversy over suspected Russian manipulation of the 2016 U.S. presidential election via its platform, and the leak of personal data of 87 million users to a political consultancy that advised Donald Trump's team. A German data privacy regulator said it was opening a non-compliance procedure against Facebook in relation to the data leak to the consultancy, Cambridge Analytica, that was exposed a month ago.

Inc.’s privacy practices gave the social-media company a clean bill of health in a report to federal authorities last year—well after Facebook discovered that political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained millions of users’ personal data. “In our opinion, Facebook’s privacy controls were operating with sufficient effectiveness to provide reasonable assurance to protect the privacy of covered information,” the auditing firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, said in the report to the Federal Trade Commission dated April 12, 2017. The audit, which covers a two-year period ended in February 2017, was required as part of a settlement that Facebook reached with the FTC in 2011 to ensure the company was clearly informing users about the way their data was being used.

Shares of social media giant Facebook Inc. fell Wednesday after the stock got its first downgrade since January. Research firm OTR Global cut its rating to mixed versus positive amid concern that year-over-year growth in advertisement spending moderated in the first quarter of 2018.
