Clare’s Fianna Fáil TD has told social media giant Facebook that it’s vital there’s transparency with data protection to allay concerns over “nefarious activity”.

Facebook’s been in the spotlight in recent weeks thanks to a major data breach involving user data being harvested by UK firm Cambridge Analytica.

They’ve now announced a pilot scheme for Irish users to deal with concerns over advertising during political campaigns where people will see every ad an organisation is running on the site, even if it’s not in your feed.


Timmy Dooley, who’s his party’s Communications Spokesperson, insists total transparency will be in everyone’s benefit going forward.
