Under severe criticism for misuse of usersâ data following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook is facing yet another allegation. According to media reports, a new filing in a California lawsuit has alleged that the social media giant collected information on users and their friends through its apps.
The allegations were reportedly made in a filing submitted last week to the superior court. It is part of a suit brought against Facebook in 2015 by a now defunct start-up.
The filing, according to reports, allege that Facebook used several methods including tracking users location, reading text messages and accessing photos.
A Facebook media representative, meanwhile, said the claims had no merit and contented that they do not log peopleâs call and text history without their consent.
