Facebook Suspends Another Data Analytics Firm As Scandal Widens


        As the Facebook scandal over Cambridge Analytica's misuse of
        the personal data of millions of users continues to unfold,
        Facebook is suspending another data analytics firm over
        similar allegations.  According to reporting by CNBC, Cubeyou
        collected data from Facebook users through personality quizzes
        "for non-profit academic research" developed with Cambridge
        University -- then sold the data to advertisers.
