Internal debate at Facebook as it considers a paid ad-free version

Keeping your privacy safe on social media

Cambridge Analytica said on May 2 that it was filing for insolvency in the United Kingdom and the United States. Wednesday's news release announcing the decision lists only Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections, not the parent company. The government says that even if non-disclosure pacts were signed between the company and its clients in India, a template of those agreements can still be produced as evidence. After assembling for meetings, employees were told to turn over their identification cards and any company property and to go home. As Wired reports, one source says the employees in the company's NY offices were told to pack up and leave immediately without being offered information on how they'll be compensated moving forward.

After scandal-hit British analytics firm Cambridge Analytica announced its shutdown, the Indian government said it would continue its inquiry into the massive data leak from Facebook to the firm, senior IT Ministry officials were reported as saying on May 3. Revelations about the misuse of data was published in March by The New York Times and The Observer of London. "Cambridge Analytica may remain an organic user on our platform, in accordance with the Twitter Rules".

Facebook has been free for users since the beginning, but now the company is reportedly considering a premium, ad-free version of the service.

Cambridge Analytica, bankrolled by wealthy Republican donor Robert Mercer, came under scrutiny for its purported methods of profiling voters. Last week it said it was "no Bond villain" and had been vilified by inaccurate reporting, including footage of Nix boasting of the company's dirty tricks — including honey traps and fake news — to win elections.

White House lawyer Ty Cobb's retirement was announced that morning in a statement from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In a statement to CBS, he said that he does not "mind being regarded as a peacemaker". "I think cooperation was the path".

A broad review of the entire business model is continuing at Facebook, while worldwide politicians call for Zuckerberg to answer questions relating to the circumstances that led Cambridge Analytica to obtain user data from millions of profiles, and allegedly use this information to influence political processes. The spokesperson at the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for the country stated, "The ICO will continue its civil and criminal investigation and will seek to pursue individuals and directors as appropriate and necessary even where companies may no longer be operating".

Despite Cambridge Analytica's unwavering confidence that its employees have acted ethically and lawfully, which view is now fully supported by [Queen's Counsel Julian Malins] report, the siege of media coverage has driven away virtually all of the Company's customers and suppliers. Cambridge Analytica's main funder Rebekah Mercer sits on that company's board.
