In September this year, Facebook announced that hackers illegally accessed information of 50 million users. Later on Friday, Facebook revealed the actual number of users affected is 29 million.

This is not the first time Facebook experienced data breach incident. Earlier in March, it was found that Cambridge Analytica had harvested user data of millions of Facebook profiles without users’ permission and used the information for political motives.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook strongly criticized Facebook. Following the strong words from Cook, Blind decided to ask Apple employees their views on Facebook’s data breach.

Interestingly, out of 236 employees at Apple, 22.46% are planning to delete Facebook accounts. It is also found that many Apple employees don’t have a Facebook account.

Apart from this global data hack, Facebook is undergoing a tough phase in India, where fake news and rumors shared via WhatsApp, and this has become an order of the day. To control this menace, WhatsApp appeals to Indian users not to spread the fake news. Moreover, WhatsApp has also adopted some tricks to spread the message of using the chat app in the right way.
