Social Media Giant Facebook Fails to Give Out Information on Cambridge Analytica

Facebook has failed to comply with the subpoenas for more information related to the ongoing privacy investigation into its alleged privacy violations and Cambridge Analytica, the media has reported.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, in new court documents, said that the social media giant has refused to comply with its subpoenas to provide more information regarding its investigation, The Verge reported on Wednesday quoting CNBC.

“If Facebook had complied with our legitimate investigative requests,” Becerra said “We would not be making this announcement today.”

According to the California Attorney, the Mark Zuckerberg-led company “has not been fully responsive” to his office’s requests for information.

“They have also failed to provide or even search for responsive documents” between CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg, Becerra noted, according to the report.
