VTV.vn - Facebook said it had suspended roughly 200 apps as part of its investigation into the potential misuse of personal data on the social network, the latest fallout from the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal.

In an announcement on Monday, the company also said that it had investigated thousands of apps two months after reporting by the Observer and the Guardian revealed that millions of Americans' personal data was harvested from Facebook and improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy.

If Facebook discovers that an app misused data, the company said it would ban them and allow users to check whether they were affected through a dedicated webpage.
