The app Cambridge Analytica used on FB

Did you take their FB personality test 'thisisyourdigitallife'? If so, you and your FB friends were lured into their trap.

"Over the weekend, Christopher Wylie, a 28-year-old Canadian who helped start up Cambridge, told The Guardian that in 2014 he began working with University of Cambridge neuroscience professor and head of Global Science Science Aleksandr Kogan, who developed a personality testing Facebook app called "thisisyourdigitallife." Under the guide of a researcher, he received permission from the social networking company to mine data from its users, but he allegedly took data from millions of people without their consent and then sold that information to Cambridge, a violation of Facebook's terms."
