Facebook emails at Cambridge Analytica Scandal could be problems for Zuckerberg



Private e-mails may contradict Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony to when Facebook learned about the data abuse from Cambridge Analytica.

Social media giant and Washington DC lawyer are sparring over an internal email chain that allegedly shows Facebook employees are discussing Cambridge Analytica data harvest scandal in September 2015. These alleged emails came months before Facebook claims it taught Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm founded by Donald Trump's backers, millions of Facebook users scraped information without their knowledge.

Facebook and the Advocate General are in court Friday to argue whether these emails can be seen by the public. If they are sealed, their content may oppose the difficult testimony of Zuckerberg made before Congress last year. It's part of a lawsuit filed by DC Attorney General Karl Racine and accusing Facebook of protecting user data.

Facebook claims it learned about Cambridge Analytics talks at the same time as the public in December 201

"Facebook was given the terms of service during the app approval process, but later it never admitted to reading the language. App users' friends received no publication.

" When Facebook learned about Kogan's Facebook data sheet data usage data in December 2015, we immediately act, "Zuckerberg told Congress last year." The company retained an external company to assist in examining Kogan's actions to require Kogan and each party to share data with deleted data and any derivative of the data and obtain certifications, as they had done. "

But the DC law firm claims to have documents indicating otherwise. On Monday, the Office submitted a proposal for unsafe emails from September 2015, which allegedly showed that US-based Facebook employees expressed concerns of Cambridge Analytica.

"A DC-based Facebook employee warned the company that Cambridge Analytica was a [redacted] spu Ask other Facebook employees for & # 39; [redacted] & # 39; and received replies that Cambridge Analytics data scratch practices were & # 39; [redacted] with Facebook's Platform Policy, the edited movement to be read exceptionally.

Facebook has struggled back to reveal e-mail content and goes to court Friday afternoon to decide If emails will be published.

Make it public " be able to give competitors valuable insight into how Facebook operates. The general public itself has little or no interest in this document, which could justify exposing Facebook to the risks that would inevitably accompany disclosure. "
