Cambridge Analytica shuts down in light of ‘unfairly negative’ press coverage

Cambridge Analytica is done. In light of a sprawling debate around a purpose in improperly receiving information from Facebook users by a third party, a association will finish a U.S. and U.K. operations.

In a press recover confirming a decision, a association pronounced that “unfairly disastrous media coverage” around a Facebook occurrence has “driven divided probably all of a Company’s business and suppliers,” creation a business no longer financially viable. The same goes for a SCL Elections, a CA-affiliated company:

Earlier today, SCL Elections Ltd., as good as certain of a and Cambridge Analytica LLC’s U.K. affiliates (collectively, a “Company” or “Cambridge Analytica”) filed applications to embark penury record in a U.K.  The Company is immediately ceasing all operations…

Additionally, together failure record will shortly be commenced on interest of Cambridge Analytica LLC and certain of a Company’s U.S. affiliates in a United States Bankruptcy Court for a Southern District of New York.

On Wednesday, only before a association went open with a news, Gizmodo reported that employees of Cambridge Analytica’s U.S. offices schooled that their jobs were being consummated when they were systematic to palm over their association keycards.

Given a already sincerely murky business practices, it stays to be seen if this is unequivocally a finish for Cambridge Analytica or only a vital rebrand while it waits for a “siege” of disastrous media coverage to cold off.

Probably a latter, given a U.K.-based SCL Group, a mothership in a constellation of compared companies, is not going out of business. Nor are a many other ventures, including a new one, Emerdata, that several former CA leaders have recently changed to.
