As reported by Reuters, so far Facebook has looked into thousands of apps, and naturally it is quite a time consuming process.
Facebook is investigating all apps that had access to large amounts of user information before Facebook changed its policies in 2014.
As was the case with Cambridge Analytica, Facebook says it will ban those who have been found to misuse the data and will notify anyone that has been affected through the website or app. After reviewing "thousands" of apps on its platform following a major data misuse scandal that blew up in March, Facebook has announced it's suspended around 200 apps - pending what it describes as a "thorough investigation" into whether or not their developers misused Facebook user data. Cambridge Analytica is the United Kingdom -based political consulting firm that had improperly licensed info on upwards of 87 million Facebook users - most of whom had no idea their data had been harvested, via a quiz app hosted on the platform in 2013.
"Facebook's stated business model has morphed into a data aggregation and marketing scheme disguised as a social network", the filing states.

According to reports, Neymar has told his teammates that he won't return to PSG after the World Cup in Russian Federation . I want to congratulate the other three finalists, who show that French football has unmistakeable talent.
Cambridge Analytica, a British data analytics firm that worked for President Donald Trump's campaigned, may have misused the personal data of 87 million Facebook users.
Zuckerberg had made its clear that any app that either refused or failed an audit would be banned from Facebook.
"We are investing heavily to make sure this investigation is as thorough and timely as possible", he adds. (Stillwell's Cambridge email has been taken down and he did not immediately respond to The Outline's request for comment on Facebook).
In addition to carrying out its own internal investigations Facebook has since updated its external privacy settings for its users.
Of course, all this depends on Facebook's definitions of misuse.
