Facebook may take years to fix private user data problems – Zuckerberg

Facebook records $9.3bn revenue

Facebook has said it may take a few years to solve the problems associated with third-parties using data from its users in unauthorised ways.

Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg, told newsmen that Facebook will dig through this hole, but it will take a few years.

Cambridge Analytica became embroiled in an international scandal after it emerged that the company had received the data of around 50 million Facebook users without their permission and through improper channels.

The company harvested the information to develop a mechanism that would predict and influence the behaviour of voters to boost U.S. President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Facebook announced recently it would shut down the partner categories, which allows third party data providers to offer their targeting directly on Facebook.

It also plans to introduce new privacy tools in the coming weeks to allow users to more easily manage and access their personal data.

In March 29, Zuckerberg apologised for the situation with the Cambridge Analytica and admitted that he should not have trusted the firm.
