Government asks Facebook for information on the use of its users’ data

Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MeitY) on Wednesday wrote a letter to social media major Facebook seeking information on the use of its users’ data.  The MeitY has asked the Facebook to submit the details by April 7 next month.

In the letter, the ministry posed a series of questions to Facebook including engagement of any entity related to the company or its affiliates earlier in manipulating the Indian electoral process.

The letter to Facebook comes days after a notice was sent to Cambridge Analytica over the media reports accusing it of adopting questionable practices to influence elections. The letter follows IT and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s warning to social media firms of stringent action last week for any attempt to interfere in the country’s electoral process.
