Former Cambridge Analytica Employee says More than 87m Facebook Users Had Data Compromised

Far more than 87 million people may have had their Facebook data harvested by Cambridge Analytica, according to a former employee Brittany Kaiser, who testify on Tuesday in the British Parliament. In addition to the psychological test app that led to the Facebook data leak scandal, the Company also launched several other tests on the Facebook.

Former Cambridge Analytica employee says more than 87m Facebook

Committees from data, culture, media and sports of British parliamentary are currently investigating the misuse of user data by Facebook and Cambridge. Brittany Kaiser, the Company’s former executive of Cambridge Analytica, evidences to the British Parliament today as part of a hearing on fake news.

Kaiser, who worked on the business team at Cambridge Analytica’s parent company until January of this year, wrote in a statement that she was “aware in a general sense of a wide range of surveys” used by Cambridge Analytica or its partners, and she said she believes the number of people whose Facebook data may have been compromised is likely higher than the widely reported 87 million.

“In my pitches, I used to give examples, even to clients, that, if you go on Facebook and you see these viral personality quizzes, not all of them would have been designed by Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group, or our affiliates, but that these applications were designed specifically to harvest data from individuals using Facebook as the tool,” she said.

“For example there was one called the sex compass to find out what your personal preferences were privately. And then there was another one on your music personality,” she said.

Kaiser’s wrote statement, claimed the number of affected users was much higher than the 87 million claimed by Facebook:

I should emphasise that the Kogan/GSR datasets and questionnaires were not the only Facebook-connected questionnaires and datasets which Cambridge Analytica used. I am aware in a general sense of a wide range of surveys which were done by CA or its partners, usually with a Facebook login – for example, the “sex compass” quiz. I do not know the specifics of these surveys or how the data was acquired or processed. But I believe it is almost certain that the number of Facebook users whose data was compromised through routes similar to that used by Kogan is much greater than 87 million; and that both Cambridge Analytica and other unconnected companies and campaigns were involved in these activities.

If what she said is ture, it will defiantly means a further expansion of the Facebook data-disclosure scandal. Katherine did not provide any test details, but she believes the tests are all about collecting data.
Cambridge Analytica did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
