Trust In Facebook Nosedives After Data Breach

Wochit - April 17, 2018

Trust in Facebook's data handling has dramatically collapsed following the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

A study by the Ponemon Institute found just 27% of people think Facebook will protect their privacy.

This was a substantial drop from the 79% of people who agreed with the statement in 2017.

Respondents were upset that Facebook didn't confess to the data breach in 2015.

These fears were considerably more pronounced for Facebook than other social media platforms..
