‘A watershed moment’: have people woken up to how their Facebook data is used following the Cambridge Analytica scandal?

My comments in PR Week article about the implications of the Cambridge Analytica scandal for political campaigning.

“We will start to see the re-emergence of ‘slow politics’ based on relationships, dialogue and engagement. Campaigns will steer away from potentially reputation-threatening techniques, however effective they might be. In political campaigning, the mantra will once again be ‘All politics is local’, not just because of the fears over data, but because Labour has shown it can be effective in winning seats. Constituency-based, hard work on local issues over time will be used alongside media engagement, of all types. Personal engagement will engender the trust which could start to fade online.”
