CambridgeAnalyticascandal
2Point of view on Cambridge Analityca scandal
No data breach, no current topic
Immediate actions
from Facebook
It was a former staff member who claimed that
Cambridge Analytica mined personal information of
approximately 50 million people in the US in 2014.
In response to the event,
Facebook reacted with a
set of ready-to-roll-out
action points, In addition
to the steps they made
since 2014 in terms of
GDPR’s governance.
The data was strategically used
through Facebook’s API during the
2016 presidential race (in support
of its eventual winner).
Even though this story was
previously published in 2017, it has
recently become breaking news,
although it quickly evolved into a
rather one-dimensional discussion
without proper fact checks.
• Review the platform. All apps that had access to large amounts of
information before the 2014 platform change will be investigated.
A full audit will be conducted of any app with suspicious activity.
• Tell people about data misuse. Extra transparency towards people
affected by apps that have misused data.
• Turn off access for unused apps: If someone hasn’t used an app
within the last three months, the app’s access to user information will be
disabled.
• Restrict Facebook Login data: The data that an app can request will
be limited to name, profile photo and email address. Requesting other
information will require approval.
• Encourage people to manage the apps they use: Facebook will make it
significantly easier for users to manage apps and permissions.
• Reward people who find vulnerabilities: Expansion of the Bug Bounty
Program.  
For instance, it’s not correct to
classify this as a data breach. While
Cambridge Analytica did engage
with an untrustworthy party, the
information was gathered with
consent of the users, and no
systems were infiltrated nor any
data such as mail addresses or
phone numbers were stolen.
it’snotcorrect
toclassifythis
asadatabreach
Last week the Cambridge Analytica data scandal sparked a widespread privacy debate
and put Facebook in the eye of a PR storm. Automatically this raises questions from
an advertisers perspective. ‘Should we gear up for an audience decrease and reshuffle
budget?’ Not really. No advertiser data has been affected and this is mainly an issue on
user level, so Facebook already implemented actions to solidify the privacy of its users
which is a benefit for advertisers too.
Background

Implications for Facebook
and Cambridge Analytica
From our point of view, implications vary
for both actors.
• Cambridge Analytica, the real
guilty party in the story, will
face prosecution and possibly
a business shutdown, as the
investigation on the British firm
has begun.
• Facebook suffered a blow to
its reputation, and the recently
announced ‘meaningful changes’
are just a prelude of many
challenges. The platform shifted
from content sharing to a valuable
data hub, and it needs to act on
that responsibility. The company
will shift to red alert-mode,
refocus profits and increase
privacy-guarding manpower and
RD.
3Point of view on Cambridge Analityca scandal
Source: Twitter Mentions of
#deletefacebook in France (Social Listening)
Limited impact for advertisers
Without minimizing
the news, we dare
to presume that the
cluster of networks
(Facebook, Instagram,
Messenger, WhatsApp)
are here to stay for
quite some time.
It’s the principle solution to a
global sentiment of FOMO. Most
users built a Facebook presence
and habit for years and they aren’t
planning to give up on that.
This explains why the
mediatized global call-to-action
#DeleteFacebook, plunged
immediately after one day (as
this French market statistic
indicates). A large decrease of
audience size, which could affect
business objectives, is unlikely
to happen. Neither do we expect
an advertiser backlash as Google
experienced in 2017 when several
brands suspended their ads due to
YouTube’s selection of unwanted
content placements.
In addition to the privacy
improvements for users, Facebook
announced that it’s no longer
possible to estimate reach for
Custom Audiences. While this will
definitely up the game for media
buyers to come up with versatile
plans, there’s no need to panic.
Facebook’s richness lies in its Core
Audience attributes: behaviours,
demographics and interests.

And what
about the
Facebook
users?
The public opinion sure was
sharp, but at some point people
need to be (re-)educated on two
levels. First of all, there’s a deep-
rooted culture of users that opt-in
too easily without reading the
fine print. Furthermore, the level
of maintenance of applications
that demand data and revoking
permissions is rather low. The
best things in life are free, but
they are sometimes built on data
and balancing is key, for all parties
involved.
4Point of view on Cambridge Analityca scandal
Takeaways
• Cambridge Analytica misused data between 2014 and
2016 and faces severe consequences
• The story is PR-driven and the focus on data privacy has
been going on for much longer
• Facebook won’t suffer a huge audience decrease but will
need to invest heavily in data privacy and a transparent
communication of scope and guidelines for users and
advertisers
• Points of improvement for users and advertisers have
already been installed
• The impact is rather low for advertisers who will benefit
from the improved user journey and standard targeting
options
