When asked why Facebook didn't follow up when it found that Cambridge Analytica was abusing user data back in 2016, Sandberg told Guthrie: "You are right we could have done this 2 1/2 years ago".
To get authorized by Facebook, "advertisers will need to confirm their identity and location", the statement said.

Still, Facebook users will no doubt be pleased to - eventually - be able to remove messages they change their minds about.
In a addition, all users will now see more about what apps they're using and what data they have access to, so they can make better decisions about what software they use.
