Many privacy advocates have criticized Facebook over its handling of the situation, and the FTC is now investigating whether the company violated the consent decree.
The University of Cambridge has rejected a freedom of information request from WikiTribune related to an internal dispute over the work of the academic who is a key character in the data scandal that has engulfed Facebook, though the university said it recognised there was public interest in the information.
Earlier this year, the Ministry of Information Technology had written to the social media giant to elicit more information on the alleged data breach. Technology companies are now protected from legal responsibility for most content thanks to section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
53% think that the tech sector should be regulated by the federal government the way big banks are (that guide is 62% among baby boomers). That figure rose to 62% among baby boomers. She said her broader knowledge of the quizzes only came about thanks to investigations of the last few weeks.
Data brokers faced the prospect of tougher US oversight in 2014, after the FTC in a report called for legislation that would enable consumers to more easily learn how data brokers use their data, correct it or opt out of the process. That is where Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg derive their power.

The results show that Americans don't believe Facebook is a neutral platform. "Instead of conducting its own review to enforce one of its most important decisions the consent decree it looked the other way, which allowed Facebook to engage in serious misconduct".
The Cambridge Analytica hack is just one of many transgressions by Facebook, in which an apology will simply not suffice.
"We are committed to vigorously enforcing our policies to protect people's information", Grewal said. Twitter scored the second-worst in these categories, with 33% and 30% respectively.
30% disagreed with the notion that Twitter "protects my personal information". It is not clear from the report whether the company informed PricewaterhouseCoopers, which performed the audit, of the Cambridge Analytica data grab that would put Facebook in the crosshairs of Congress.
I should emphasise that the Kogan/GSR datasets and questionnaires were not the only Facebook-connected questionnaires and datasets which Cambridge Analytica used. However, when they were asked about specific companies, none received majority approval for being "good for democracy".
