Facebook is calling it the Data Abuse Bounty. Google even runs a programme called Google Preferred that lets advertisers pay extra money to get their ads onto the most popular kid-directed channels", the petition said, accusing the companies of collecting "billions of data points from millions of children and making untold amounts of money off the use and sale of that data without ever telling parents".
Zuckerberg's reply: "It will not be shared with third parties".
Facebook said last week that almost 1.2 million of its users in the Philippines may have had their data exposed to Cambridge Analytica, more than any other country outside the United States. Meanwhile, 78 Facebook users in Nigeria installed the app on their phone.
The new features introduced by Facebook serve as effort to inform users on the information accessed on the site, following a recent congressional hearing where Zuckerberg answered questions regarding how the site utilizes user information.
Other countries with a significant number of affected users include the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, India, Brazil and Vietnam.
Those who accessed the app, did not only put their personal data in jeopardy, but also the data of all their Facebook friends. Indonesia also allegedly saw the user data of 1 million citizens caught up in Facebook's data scandal. "And people have the ability to see everything that they have in FB, to take that out, delete their account and move their data anywhere that they want", he said.
Kogan denied handing over the information to Cambridge Analytica for use on any of its campaigns.
Appearing before the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday - his second testimony before the US Congress in less than 24 hours - Zuckerberg told the lawmakers that his own personal data was part of 87 million users' that was "improperly shared" with Cambridge Analytica.
The company will investigate the report and decide what action to take. Facebook plans to look into whether Cubeyou collected data for academic purposes and then used it commercially, following a partnership with Cambridge University in the UK.
"We have made a lot of mistakes in running the company", Zuckerberg was quoted as saying. "We will pay the person who reported the issue, and we will also alert those we believe to be affected". However, there is certainly a difference between people who say they have deleted their Facebook and those who actually did it.
