Facebook says Cambridge Analytica may have had data on 87 million people

Facebook said on Wednesday that the personal information of up to 87 million users may have been improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, up from a previous news media estimate of more than 50 million.

Most of the 87 million people were in the United States and the United Kingdom, Schroepfer wrote in the blog post.
