The applications that are run through Facebook may seem like harmless fun, but tens of thousands of apps are being investigated for data misuse, as reported by New Scientist.

Mr Zuckerberg testified before members of the US Senate and Congress after revelations that the political consulting firm UK-based Cambridge Analytica-a data mining firm used by the Donald Trump campaign in the last election-improperly harvested data of up to 87 million Facebook users.
