The case may only cover one person - but if Carroll gets his way, that means up to 240 million other USA users could demand to see the personal information Cambridge Analytica has been storing through the UK's legal process, The Guardian reports.
While this decision was extremely painful for Cambridge Analytica's leaders, they recognize that it is all the more hard for the Company's dedicated employees who learned today that they likely would be losing their jobs as a result of the damage caused to the business by the unfairly negative media coverage.
In the poll of 1,163 respondents, more than 80 percent said they would rather leave Facebook than pay for features such as messaging, joining groups, or register for events. The remaining quarter were logging into Facebook less or had deleted their accounts, but this reduction was offset by the number of people who had increased their usage.

Just 55 percent and 60 percent of Twitter/Instagram users said they were aware of current privacy settings, while 58 and 65 percent said they knew how to change their settings. Included in the sample were more than 1,000 Twitter and Instagram users. Facebook's earlier research of its user base revealed that people were not willing to pay for a platform which they believed would be always available for free. Another 49 per cent said they have "some control", and 20 per cent said they had "no control".
The findings of the poll, which was conducted from April 26 to 30, may give clues to advertisers and analysts as to whether Facebook's business suffered any blowback from the scandal, which came to light in late March, after reports by The Guardian and The New York Times.
