menlo park - Facebook topman Mark Zuckerberg speaks to his staff for the first time since this week's upheaval about leaked user data. He is also expected to answer questions about the issue together with operational responsible person Sheryl Sandberg.
It is an internal live video connection for all staff worldwide, a common way for Zuckerberg to catch up with his employees. According to sources, employees walk around with a lot of questions.
'Mark, Sheryl and their teams work non-stop to get all the facts in a row and take the necessary steps,' said a Facebook representative earlier. 'The whole company is angry and we feel misled. '
Facebook holds Cambridge Analytica responsible. That data-analysis company would have acquired the personal information of tens of millions of Facebook users, via a befriended company, in a devious way, to use for Donald Trump's campaign.
An app was developed that users use on Facebook, supposedly for scientific research. In reality, not only the data of the users of the app were passed on, but also data about their Facebook friends.
The bomb around the data company was bursting thanks to a documentary from Channel 4 News. In it, CEO Alexander Nix, together with other bobo's, boasted about influencing hundreds of elections, in countries such as Argentina, Nigeria and the Czech Republic. Old spies would be used, just like prostitutes. There would also be bribery in the game.
Since the riot, Facebook has been under heavy attack, because it would not have done anything when the company learned how Cambridge Analytica had captured the data. Mark Zuckerberg has to justify himself in the European Parliament and the company's shares have plummeted on the stock exchange.
