Facebook has suspended a Canadian data firm that played a key role in the campaign for the UK to leave the EU. The social media giant said AggregateIQ (AIQ) may have improperly received users' data. It cites reported links with the parent company of Cambridge Analytica (CA), the consultancy accused of improperly accessing the data of millions.
Christopher Wylie's specialty was to predict fashion trends before starting work at 17 for a Canadian politician, at 18 he participated in Obama's campaign to learn about his data management and later he helped to found Cambridge Analytica (CA), the consultant accused of misuse of data of about 50 million users of Facebook. However, Wylie said he feels regretful.
