The social media giant, Facebook is currently facing the wrath of its users for compromising the data. The company has been in the news after reports emerged that Facebook indirectly helped Donald Trump in the 2016 elections.

The initial reports suggested that Facebook compromised the data of over 50 million users. This led to a massive outbreak on the global level and drew a lot of criticism for the social media platform. However, the latest reports confirm even more worrying statistics.

In a recent event, Facebook declared that the date of over 82 million users has been used in illegal ways. To everyone’s surprise, over 563,000 users are from India. These statistics have been reported by the higher official from Facebook.

Ever since this news broke out, the market value of the social media platform has been dipping drastically.
