A company suspended from Facebook in the fallout of the Cambridge Analytica scandal says it feels betrayed by the social media giant.

Cubeyou collected information about users of the social media site through personality quiz apps that was allegedly sold for marketing purposes.

Chief executive Federico Treu told the BBC the firm had done "nothing wrong".

Facebook said the suspension was a "careful decision" made as part of a broader ongoing investigation.

The tech giant is looking into whether Cubeyou collected data for academic purposes and then used it commercially, following a partnership with Cambridge University in the UK.

It said it took "any report of suspicious activity that could threaten people's privacy" very seriously.

The allegations are similar to the way During that hearing, Mr Zuckerberg said Facebook would investigate "tens of thousands" of apps to discover if any other companies had accessed data in a similar way to Cambridge Analytica.

Cubeyou is one of a number of firms set up to help businesses such as publishers and advertisers target their marketing. It is unknown whether it has also helped campaigns spread political messages, as was the case with Cambridge Analytica.

On its website, Cubeyou desCRIbes itself as having "all the best consumer data sources in one place".

"Identify consumers not only by their demographics or consumption habits but by leveraging the whole spectrum of their personalities, interests and passions," it says.
