He didn't just compare Trump's rhetoric to Hitler's; he did it in an explicitly approving way.

Dang. This message was waiting for me when I signed into FB today. They don't tell me who so that I could determine which, if any posts were compromised or any of that.

Protecting Your Information
We understand the importance of keeping your data safe.

We have banned the app "This Is Your Digital Life," which one of your friends used Facebook to log into. We did this because the app may have misused some of your Facebook information by sharing it with a company called Cambridge Analytica. In most cases, the information was limited to public profile, Page likes, birthday, and current city.

You can learn more about what happened and how you can remove apps and websites anytime if you no longer want them to have access to your Facebook information.

There is more work to do, but we are committed to confronting abuse and to putting you in control of your privacy.
When I click on more info, I get this:

Quote:
Based on our investigation, you don't appear to have logged into "This Is Your Digital Life" with Facebook before we removed it from our platform in 2015.

However, a friend of yours did log in. As a result, the following information was likely shared with "This Is Your Digital Life": Your public profile, Page likes, birthday and current city

A small number of people who logged into "This Is Your Digital Life" also shared their own News Feed, timeline, posts and messages which may have included posts and messages from you.

Unless you have more than one grouping of Friends on Facebook (I added in Close Friends for those I have no issues sharing my more private thoughts with) or make heavy use of privatized, directed Facebook posts ... It really doesn't matter which of your friends used the "app" as the data gleaned would be the same.

Of course it helps! Name and shame.
