Reminds me of that guy on Ted Talks saying we should put as much of our data online as possible.

'You're collecting billions of data points, do you store them?'
"I'm not sure whats that referring to".
After much ado...
Finally has to answer YES.
'Do you collect etc etc etc etc etc info (including GPS locations)'
'Do you disclose any of that?'
(after earlier saying that they dont disclose info, that people tell them who to send ads to and they do it all for them)

They really are not touching on a fraction of how Facebook uses your data.
A large percentage of web sites these days automatically check if the user is also logged into Facebook. Then they combine this data with the pages visited on the web site in many ways that we probably are not even aware of. Facebook knows where you are at all times if you are logged in on your phone. The amount of ways your Facebook data is used is endless.
Not only that, even if you've never been on FB, they still create a shadow profile of you. At the sites that you visit that have a FB share option still send your data to FB. You don't even have to opt in to have your data collected and stored under your internet profile they've created for you.
