Facebook officials apologizes to Indonesian parliaments over misuse of personal data

In a statement read out at the hearing, Facebook’s head of public policy in Indonesia Ruben Hattari said that 1,095,918 people from Indonesia may have had their data shared, or 1.26 percent of the global total.

Indonesia’s Communications Minister Rudiantara has also said he wants more information from Facebook on how data sharing affected people in the country. The minister told Reuters on Monday he had sent a second warning letter to Facebook over the issue.

Indonesians are among the world’s biggest users of Facebook and authorities in the Southeast Asian country have demanded answers from the company on how personal data of its citizens was shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
