CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA: How potential propaganda filled the minds of Kenya voters
Facebook suspended a data mining firm that is said to have been used by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party, Jubilee, in the last election. On Friday, Facebook Inc said it was suspending Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL), including their political data analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica. Facebook said in a statement that it took the action after it found they had violated its policies. Facebook said that protecting people’s information is at the heart of everything it does, and requires the same from people who operate apps on the platform.
