Facebook has increased the number of people it says may have been impacted by the Cambridge Analytica scandal from 50 million in earlier reports to 87 million and will begin telling people if their information may have been improperly shared.

Why it matters: The company is announcing nine changes to how it shares data in response to the data improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica. Earlier today the company updated its terms of service for first time since 2015.
