Here's A List Of Everything Facebook Knows About You


Here's A List Of Everything Facebook Knows About You

And it isn't just Facebook that knows all this - your data is freely shared with the NSA and CIA. It's also available, without a warrant, to every law enforcement branch in the country. Just submit a written request on official letterhead and you get access to all this.

The information is also a goldmine for hackers, who routinely exploit vulnerabilities in apps, passwords and Facebook servers to steal the information.

The data is a goldmine for marketers as well, with the company's business model premises on selling it to marketers, who in turn target you with very specific ads.

The massive amount of data isn't unique to Facebook. Every other social network - Instagram, Whatsapp, Snapchat and more all collected very similar data sets. So too do app makers, cellphone companies and even smartphone makers like Apple.

It's worthwhile looking at what the company collects and asking yourself 'do they really need to know all of this about me?'.

So as you ponder that, here is a list of everything Facebook knows about you.
