LOGGING OFF Shane O'Brien is not prepared to put up with the misuse of his information

Facebook has revealed new information regarding its user data collection processes in light of the ongoing Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal. "This is because other apps and sites don't know who is using Facebook", wrote David Baser, Facebook's product management director, in a blog post.

The advertisement tool allows Facebook to share statistics on how many people are responding to an ad with the advertising companies.
