Facebook suspends yet another analytics company


Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Facebook allows a third-party analytics company access to user data, conducts poor oversight of said company, and then is caught flat-footed when asked about the situation by a journalist. 

Yeah, it’s happened again. And no, you’re not crazy for getting that Cambridge Analytica déjà vu. Facebook was forced to suspend Boston-based Crimson Hexagon today after the Wall Street Journal reported on the company’s contracts with a Kremlin-tied Russian nonprofit and the U.S. government.
