Revelations about Facebook's role in the exploitation of user data by a company called Cambridge Analytica to support the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, as well as the outcome of the Brexit vote - the referendum leading the United Kingdom to leave the European Union - have provoked widespread calls for tough, new data privacy laws. There are many different features in the social media giant that most people do not use. He didn't mention whether those other apps included Facebook's own Messenger, as well as Instagram and WhatsApp, which are also both owned by Facebook. As of December, Facebook reported an average of 1.4 billion daily active users and 2.1 billion monthly active users. How do we deal with the new public sphere as it operates?'

"The Facebook situation will be a wakeup call for companies that are working in the tech industry and dealing with data-which is really all companies these days", said Fiona J. McEvoy, a tech ethics researcher at You the Data, a platform for discussing the societal impact of technology in San Francisco.

"[Facebook] is sitting on one of the richest, most longitudinal, quantitative data sets we've ever seen", said Khatibloo.
