    I watched much of the live-stream of Wylie’s evidence. Is there an archive or transcript somewhere that we can refer to? Some points from memory:

    He said that the number of compromised facebook users was substantially higher that 50 million. So that should be fixed.

    A quote in the current article has a word missing, surely: “I was not there so I CANNOT speak to the veracity of it.”

      Hi Robbie,

      the video is archived here:

      Unfortunately I didn’t find a transcript.

      The Guardian reports on 4 April 2018 that an official facebook blog puts the number of users whose personal data was abused as “up to 87 million people”.
