The finding is from the most recent wave of The QT, a consumer confidence and attitude tracking study conducted on a quarterly basis by the7stars, which highlights how public sentiment towards the social network has changed in the wake of the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

"However, such reports raise uncomfortable questions about the assurances made by Facebook", the statement said.

They also stated that Nix and his companions set up a new company, Emerdata, in order to rebrand their old firm and recover from the data mining scandal. Cambridge Analytica played a key role in the Donald Trump presidential campaign and lawmakers on both sides of the Atlantic are conducting investigations into whether the billionaire was elected on the back of information from the social media giant.

Facebook said Kogan then violated its policies by passing the data to Cambridge Analytica.

The remarks came as an unrepentant Nix clashed with British lawmakers investigating the use of Facebook data in election campaigns.

This information he revealed also showed how political campaigns like Vote Leave in the United Kingdom spent huge sums of money with the Canadian data firm AggregateIQ to influence vote outcomes.

"My focus was on whether we still held the data". 'All Mr Nix's comments carried in our reports were used in context, including any caveats, ' the broadcaster said in a statement.

Christopher Wylie, the whistleblower who exposed the relations between Cambridge Analytica and the data firms was, he warned, spreading a damaging and misleading conspiracy theory. But he insisted he was entrapped by unscrupulous, undercover journalists from Channel 4 News - a claim the news organization rejected.

"It is deeply troubling that this conspiracy theory has spread so widely, and caused such damage to our company", he said.

Nix denied a story in the Financial Times that he had withdrawn $8 million from Cambridge Analytica before its collapse last month.

Kaiser met with Assange in February, according to Ecuadorian embassy visitor logs obtained by the Guardian, and also allegedly gave WikiLeaks money in the form of cryptocurrency.
