The US firm said it “wished it had done more to investigate Cambridge Analytica” earlier.

Cambridge researcher, Dr. Aleksandr Kogan, and his company, GSR, used a personality quiz to harvest the Facebook data of up to 87 million people, which a database later shared with the London-based Cambridge Analytica.

The latter was linked both with the Leave campaign in the UK and the 2016 Donald Trump Presidential campaign.
