Andreeas stayed with Wiley while the story broke in March 2018, according to one of the sources. However, there was no "follow-up" to make Wiley's information work.
Andresen's venture capital company, Andreasen Horowitz, declined to answer questions. In a statement, Facebook said they did not know about the transfer of data to Cambridge Analytica until December 201
Leakage (if accurate) does not guarantee that Mark Zuckerberg or other leaders knew what was happening, but could fill the gap at a time that remains obviously empty. This would also raise the question of why a chief board member had talked to Wiley about a year and a half before Cambridge Analytic's misappropriation of data became public. Whatever the answers is not good to see when Facebook is already struggling with data processing investigations. Update 3/16 22:37 ET: Mark Andrewson dismissed the statement in Engadget's statement, calling it "categorically and completely untrue." He said that a colleague had offered to meet Wiley, but that the meeting never happened. You can read the full statement below. "The suggestion that I had or was hosting a meeting with Christopher Wiley is definitely and totally untrue I never met Wiley in my life, my colleague suggested by e-mail that I meet Wiley, but this meeting never took place. "Later, at the beginning of 2018, Wiley looked at Twitter and asked for a meeting I rejected."
