MIT Technology Review reports Cambridge Analytica, whose parent company entered into a contract with Kogan's company, later "combined the Facebook data with other data sets to build robust, integrated profiles of 30 million U.S. voters".

Last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg tried to reassure Capitol Hill that his social network is clamping down on outfits like Cambridge Analytica, which obtained the private information of as many as 87 million users while working for President Trump's 2016 campaign.

Though consumers have been willing to subscribe to some online services, social media experts say when it comes to firms like Facebook - which has been free since its launch and whose ads can easily be scrolled past - a pay model is unlikely to catch on.

According to a joint report by AP and NBC News, the original data was collected by an academic researcher, Aleksander Kogan, through a personality quiz Facebook app called "This is Your Digital Life".
