There has probably not been a tougher time for Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg other than the recent couple of months. The social media platform, which has grown to control so much of people’s personal data across the world, was accused of laxity in their user data protection.
The very laxity that led to Cambridge Analytica gaining personal data of millions of Facebook users around the world. The company Analytica has been accused of meddling with elections around the world and running online campaigns, which led to the rigging of public opinion in favor of political seat candidates who hired their services.
Such accusations were facing Cambridge Analytica with the Brexit vote, the last U.S. Presidential Election, and the Kenya’s General Elections among others. The heat has not yet died down on Facebook, with a section of the corporate world across America and the world in general calling for mass deletion of Facebook accounts.
