Following revelations that Cambridge Analytica used data obtained from a Facebook-powered quiz to influence the 2017 US Election campaign, weare calling time on Mark Zuckerberg’s tenure as boss of the social media giant.
We’ve priced Zuckerberg at 11/2 to announce he is stepping down, following the potential misuse of personal data.
With Cambridge Analytica accused of using the information to aid Donald Trump’s campaign team, the data analytics firm is also rated at 66/1 to have also used data to fix the outcome of Britain’s EU referendum in 2016.
Asked about the scandal spokesman Paddy Power said: “In light of the new GDPR laws coming into force in May, social media platforms have an even bigger responsibility to protect their users’ data, so people certainly won’t ‘like’ this revelation.
“With an angry response directed at the social network boss, the writing is on the Facebook wall for Zuckerberg’s change of status.”
