CNET: Facebook’s banned research app collected data on almost 200K users. “It looks like we now know the number of users affected by a banned Facebook market research app, which paid users up to $20 a month to give the social media site access to how they used their phones. The app, which gained attention earlier this year after Apple blocked Facebook from offering to iPhone users, collected sensitive device data on about 187,000 users, the social network told lawmakers.”
