6:10 pm
use alec forest whiting has been tracking that story and joins me now welcome alex 1st of all can you explain exactly why this fines be levied well the u.s. federal trade commission or f.t.c. is basically the consumer protection agency and it is been investigating allegations that the british political consultancy firm cambridge analytical had been accessing the data of tens of millions of facebook users the cambridge analysts ago which has since collapsed had a quiz on facebook where it was harvesting this information and the company was also alleged to have had links with donald trump's 2016 presidential campaign the issue is whether facebook broke regulations in not notifying facebook users that they were using their data and sharing it and that they didn't get consent from those users so that is what this f.t.c. investigation has been about also talking about
