WASHINGTON, 12 JULY - A 5 billion dollar blow hits Facebook for violating the privacy rules in the Cambridge Analytica case. The fine - according to the Wall Street Journal - was decided by the Federal Trade Commission (Ftc), the authority of the sector, and is the largest ever imposed against a hi-tech company.
The authority had begun to investigate in March 2018 when it was discovered that Cambridge Analytica for political purposes had come into possession of the data of about 87 million Facebook users.
