Mark Zuckerberg Could Pay for 2016 Election Scandal Personally

Mark Zuckerberg could be the one to pay for the past sins of Facebook.

After Donald Trump’s US Presidential victory in 2016, Facebook was accused of letting Cambridge Analytica, a company specializing in strategic communications, use the data of nearly 50 million users to influence voters in favor of the Republican candidate.

At first the company went on the defensive, denying that it had any liability for broadcasting what turned out to be Russian disinformation.

But many lawsuits and many boycotts later, Facebook did take responsibility for the information on its platform and promised to do better in the future at recognizing and removing coordinated misformation campaigns.
