Mr Archibong said Facebook would "show people if they or their friends installed an app that misused data before 2015" at this website, but affected users would not be able to claw that information back.
"To date, thousands of apps have been investigated and around 200 have been suspended - pending a thorough investigation into whether they did in fact misuse any data", the executive noted. In addition, they will also tell individuals by means of this site. "It is disappointing that a company with the resources of Facebook chooses not to provide a sufficient level of detail and transparency on various points including on Cambridge Analytica, dark ads, Facebook Connect, the amount spent by Russian Federation on United Kingdom ads on the platform, data collection across the web, budgets for investigations, and that shows general discrepancies between Schroepfer and Zuckerberg's respective testimonies", Collins said in a statement. Another app, called "myPersonality" has now been revealed to have disclosed "intimate" details of at least three million Facebook users.
Besides being an academic project, myPersonality, like its personality quiz siblings, let commercial companies - or, at least, their researchers - get their hands on the data. (Kogan was previously on the myPersonality project, as well).
The social network will be conducting a "thorough investigation" to check whether these apps have misused user data or not.
This, however, was not how the data was handled. The data of these users profiles was not only shared with the Cambridge researchers, the data was available to anyone wanting to access it.

"We've received strong feedback from regulators and judicial systems outside of Europe that they want us to be directly responsive to them and not be required to go through Europe on data protection matters", Facebook said. The committee intends for a hearing to take place before May 24.
Facebook also fired a parting shot at the committee, as it pointed out that it had held lengthy meetings and evidence sessions across the world, provided written submissions and that "one of the most senior people in the company has given 5 hours of testimony" to the MPs. The app is now under investigation for potentially having violated the platform's policies due to the language used in the app and on its website to describe its data-sharing practices.
Facebook has suspended these apps, pending further investigations into each app developer's potential data misuse.
Over 280 people from almost 150 institutions eventually gained access to the full data set by registering as a collaborator to the project.
