Devex Examines Facebook Data Scandal, Implications For Global ‘Data For Good’ Efforts

Devex: What the Facebook scandal means for ‘data for good’
“As Facebook responds to a public relations nightmare — the fallout from news that a political consulting firm violated its rules for third party apps — organizations that have worked with the social media giant to use its data for good are wondering what the implications may be for their partnerships. … As Facebook works to make changes internally, the question is not only what the impact will be on its data for good partnerships, but also whether this will drive a more serious conversation on responsible data sharing between the private and public sector…” (Cheney, 4/6).
