Cambridge Analytica: Facebook risks a record sanction

Facebook may pay a high price for the Cambridge Analytica scandal over the use of personal data. The social network could be fined $ 2 billion in the United States, US media reports.

Indeed, Marck Zuckerberg’s firm is in negotiation with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to find common ground on the amount of the fine.

As a reminder, Facebook was accused of allowing the Cambridge Analytica company to siphon the data of 87 million users, mostly Americans. In the United States, the fine is $ 41,000, but the FTC plans to multiply this amount by the number of users involved. The fine of $ 2 billion would be 100 times higher than the record imposed on the other giant of the net Google ($ 22.5 million).
