Cambridge Analytica Academic Sues Facebook For Making Him Their 'Scapegoat'

Aleksandr Kogan created an app that enabled Cambridge Analytica to collect personal details of millions of Facebook users.

Now, he's suing Facebook for defamation for when it said he lied about how the data collected by the app would be used.

Business Insider reports Kogan previously said that Facebook and Cambridge Analytica cynically used him.

Facebook knew exactly what this app was doing, or should have known.

Facebook desperately needed a scapegoat, and Alex was their scapegoat.
