Find out if Facebook leak affected you
TechTalk’s Kayla Elliott has published an informative article that can help you find out if the Facebook data leak issue has affected you in any ways.
Elliott says, “There are speculations that by segmenting the content shown to different Facebook users based on their personal information, their perceptions of the election candidates were impaired. Therefore, theoretically this may have made voters vote a different way than had they never been shown the information segmented based on their personal information. Due to those concerns, some reporting outlets believe the U.S. election results were tampered with. Whether or not this is true, can be debated.
However, what Facebook users must be concerned with is if their information was involved with this scandal. The likelihood of you, or someone you know being impacted is quite high, as reports have confirmed 87 million accounts were involved.
To find out, you’ll need to log into your Facebook account. After doing so, you may go to this website. Roughly halfway down the page, you’ll see this “Was My Information Shared” box”.
