Sandberg spoke out during an interview on NBC's Today programme, where she was probed over Facebook's failure to protect user data.

Elsewhere Sandberg confirmed that Facebook was conducting a "forensic audit" to ascertain what other data Cambridge Analytica might possess, warning that she expected to "find other things". It didn't take long to realize how those motivated by an ill will might weaponize what I consider a useful tool and others find entertaining.

'We had legal assurances from them that they deleted it. "We have to learn from our mistakes and we need to take action", she said.

'Mark knows that and knows that, I know that, and we own that responsibility'. "We wanted to make sure we knew exactly what happened", Sandberg explained, referring to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

"You were right that we could have done this two and a half years ago", Sandberg conceded.

"Facebook has been co-operating with us and, while I am pleased with the changes they are making, it is too early to say whether they are sufficient under the law".

Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, has admitted more data breaches could come to light as the company investigates its practices following the privacy scandal.

"We really believed in social experiences".

Subsequent revelations since prompted me to accept Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg's offer to access and examine my user data.

'There's the good cases for sharing and I think we were very idealistic and not rigorous enough and then there's the possible misuse, ' she added.

She insisted the firm cared about privacy, but admitted it had previously "got the balance wrong". "Security is an ongoing game", Sandberg mused.

Hancock said yesterday: "I'll be meeting Facebook next week".

"Unfortunately some explanations fall short of my expectations".

"As part of my investigation into the use of personal data and analytics by political campaigns, parties, social media companies and other commercial actors, the ICO is investigating 30 organisations, including Facebook", she said in a statement.

"This story is too important, too shocking, to treat it as business as usual", Jourova said of the privacy scandal.
