Facebook  said on Thursday it had suspended a data analytics firm associated with the Trump 
campaign, but may have indeed greatly downplayed the scale of the data that firm actually had 
access to, according to a new report in The New York Times.

Cambridge Analytica  had worked with University of Cambridge psychology professor named Dr. 
Aleksandr Kogan, who had developed an app called “thisisyourdigitallife” and obtained user 
information — which the Times is reporting scooped up information on profiles of as many as 
50 million users. Late Friday, Facebook acknowledged that 270,000 people downloaded the 
app, which used Facebook Login and granted access to users’ geographic information. But just 
one person — with hundreds of friends — allowing access to a personal information through an 
app, circa 2014, may have had a much larger impact than it does today.
