Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Will Testify In Congress On April 11
The project was put on hold after widespread outrage on Facebook's failure to protect user data prompted the company to consider working on improving its own security and privacy tools before trying to gather even more data. AggregateIQ will lose all Facebook access.
Schroepfer will give evidence on April 26, following appearances earlier in the month from Alexander Nix, the former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, and Aleksandr Kogan, the senior associate at Cambridge University, according to a statement from the United Kingdom government Friday.
Sandberg also said, in a different interview, that Facebook can not conduct such an audit because it must wait for the United Kingdom information commissioner to finishes its investigation of CA's election activity.
In an interview with "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, Sandberg again acknowledged that the company mishandled the breach that allowed Cambridge Analytica, the data analysis firm that worked with Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, to harvest millions of users' information.
Facebook stopped apps from being able to take info from people's Facebook friends without the permission of those friends back in 2015.
Speaking to NBC's Today programme, Sandberg also laid the ground for her boss Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before Congress, saying he had "already apologized" and wanted to tell representatives what his firm were doing to make things right.
