"Last week showed how much more work we need to do to enforce our policies and help people understand how Facebook works and the choices they have over their data", they said in their post. In it, Facebook executive Andrew Bosworth said "all the work we do in growth is justified", even if it costs people their lives because they are exposed to bullies or die in a terrorist attack coordinated through Facebook. So don't be surprised if you like some brand's clothing on Instagram and see the same ads on your Facebook timeline.

It's not just Facebook, and the data you think is private may never have been.

Facebook's latest crisis of trust, this time inspired by the Cambridge Analytica news, has led many of its users to realize something very important: Facebook's users are not the customers.

"With nearly 2 billion users, Facebook customizes the audience for its millions of advertisers based on its vast trove of personalized user data".

Click the "Download Archive" button on this second screen, and you'll download a.zip file that should be called: "facebook-YOURUSERNAME.zip". Then you what Facebook has collected and you can make an educated decision: Do I want to share all this information with Facebook?

I don't know about you, but I know more or less immediately whether I'm going to accept a new friend request.

At some point, Facebook asked me to grant it access to my phone contacts. At least one user has reported that all of his text messages from an Android phone have somehow ended up being stored by Mark Zuckerberg's company. Among other things, it narrows the scope of app permissions so they don't suck in as much user data automatically.

Still, there are always occasions when someone you barely know will add you as a friend and you'll end up waiting for the problem to go away rather than confirm that you definitely don't want to connect.

Facebook is encountering a tremendous pressure for sharing information with 3rd-party companies. Facebook uploads metadata so it knows who you are texting and when. Are you thinking about deleting your account? There were contacts included in the data list that I didn't talk to anymore.
