However, his decision to speak out against the social network still came as a surprise, particularly given his close previous ties to the Menlo Park, California-based company. At present, Acton is running his own venture, named Signal.

Meanwhile, Cambridge Analytica, has suspended its chief executive, Alexander Nix.

Facebook are under increasing pressure to explain its privacy safeguards that protect its users data from regulators and politicians in both the United Kingdom and the US.
