Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says he was sorry the Cambridge Analytica data breach "happened" but stopped short of apologising to affected users.

In my case, I found the data to be both stunning in terms of its breadth-but also its incompleteness.

Does Facebook know more about me than other platforms?
