Aleksandr Kogan, the computer scientist at the center of the Facebook data harvesting scandal, said Mark Zuckerberg is “totally” a hypocrite in a Monday CNBC interview. Kogan made headlines in March after the New York Times and The Guardian reported that political data firm Cambridge Analytica bought data on as many as 87 million Facebook users – harvested by Kogan’s personality app, thisismydigitallife.

The Moldovan-born researcher from Cambridge University says he’s being used as a scapegoat, and that there are “tens of thousands” of other apps do the same thing, Kogan said. “It’s certain”

“In reality, I think, the truth is we’ve got tens of thousands of over apps that did the same thing, probably on a much bigger scale than me,” Kogan told CNBC’s Power Lunch. “And they’re all out there and Facebook has no accounting for it.”

“The amazing thing is if you go and look at Facebook apps literally right now, many, if not most will have language in the terms of service that say they can transfer the data to third parties. I’m not talking about small companies, I am talking about some of the biggest companies in the world. And you can go and do this yourself right now. And Facebook is still not policing it.”

    Please understand that suck-a-booger is owned by its grandpa roc-a-fella. it is no better than any scum sucking lying POS that lives under a rock in district of criminals. It will lie when/if necessary and do so without conscience. money and power is the only motivation for this human crap. when you signed on to face-less book, you actually gave them permission to invade your life and if you are still there…what you get is what you get.
