Facebook agrees to pay fine in Cambridge Analytica scandal

Facebook has agreed to pay a 500,000-pound ($643,000) fine for failing to protect the privacy of its users in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, agreeing to accept the fine without admitting any liability.

Facebook associate general counsel Harry Kinmonth says the company has "made major changes" to the platform since that time and that it is "significantly restricting the information which app developers could access."
