Facebook issued with £500,000 fine over Cambridge Analytica scandal
Facebook has been issued with a £500,000 ($645,155) fine by the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the maximum fine the office can enforce.

The ICO issued the penalty for the tech giant’s processing of people’s data without their consent. Third-party apps were able to attain the personal data of tens of millions of Facebook users between 2007 and 2014. Users were not protected by the company’s terms and conditions.

It's not enough. they probably made more than that by selling the data in the first place.

That's like giving an average working person a 2 dollar fine.

Under the old law, before the data protection act started earlier this year 500k was the maximum fine.
