Makes you wonder if they are not behind some of the credit card scams and thefts.

‘American Stazi’: Who’s your ‘daddy’ now?
Being a Facebook user is like owning a pittbull—both are stupid, and realize it too late.
And have been, for many years.
IIRC, this has been known for at least a few years now. It's been proven time and again that even without a facebook account, facebook collects data on literally everyone on the web.
You can take a perfectly "virgin" computer with no OS installed on it, format the drive, install the OS and start browsing the Internet with it. Within an hour that computer will have a facebook cookie on it which tracks and reports their every move. Cookies from Yahoo, Google, Amazon and others all make their cookies readable to facebook also who collects and aggregates that data building a user profile.
That user profile gets tagged and TRACKED across multiple devices including desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones smart-watches, fitness trackers, etc..
It is damn' near inescapable getting tracked by facebook on the internet and it all happens without anyone's express consent.
This shit needs to stop, faceboook needs to get busted by FedGov, fined heavily and shut down. Just my opinion of course and I'd typically never say the Government should interfere in anything however this is one case where it absolutely should.
Some time ago, I was reading about a "non profit" which was keeping intelligence data which law enforcement was prohibited to maintain, and passing along summaries on request.
We're already there with "demonetization", and unapproved companies being stopped from being able to accept credit card payments or get bank accounts:
"Bad" companies included companies involved in firearms and ammunition sales, and other legal activities.

And then Facebook tells.....
(some of my former associates told me it’s all tinfoil and “black helicopter” stuff if I believe that).
Here’s a shock: They were basically liberals in a lot of ways. They didn’t see a problem with Obama, Islam,.....
Those commercials were awesome. I loved ‘em.
[We are already under the iron hand of big brother.]
Yes, 9/11 changed everything.
Thank you. (The article was behind a paywall for me.)
Seems like Facebook is really trying to be evil here.
It might not even be the apps doing it. If you put private information into an app, and it stores it; whether locally in a cookie, or in the app itself, unless there is really good security already implemented, Facebook or partners working for them can crawl through app sites and read collected data, or databases, or even when you make a connection and they scan your cookies and browsing content/history files.
Of course, most apps have a EULA to use their app, that often say they have the right to share your data with...anyone they choose to.
Even Free Republic has a cookie that saves your username and password so you don’t have to log in every time you go to the site.
Facebook is evil. So are smartphone apps. It figures they’re in confederation.
Forwarding to ShadowAce....
Gosh, their founder and CEO is a megalomaniac, a misogynist, a weaponized autist -- what could go wrong?
Inevitably, there will be 4 or 18 or 351 Freepers chiming in on this thread, "Ah only user it fer pikshures of the grankids."
Just totally incognizant of the massive, total, complete data collection of their everyday lives.
If Facebook were to come to their front door and say,
"Hi, I'm from Facebook, I already know everything about you. I know about your instant message argument with your ex-wife, I know about your proclivities, I know who you backed in every election, I know you're a Freeper!, I know how much time you spend on FreeRepublic.com!, I know how much you GIVE JIM ROB!"they would be thrown off the front porch or worse.
But as long as that scenario doesn't happen in real life, Freepers don't give a shit.
So, know what? If Freepers don't get off Facebook, and yet gather here to wonder why so many BigData companies like insurance and credit and charities always seems to know so much more about them already, or why those WholeLifeScam direct mailers talk about your kids & grandkids by name, I don't give a shit anymore.
They also have smart doorbells now. They operate via an app on the smartphone and take pictures and shoot video. No thanks!
One of these days lying to an app or Facebook will become a crime. 1984.
It already has.
Thanks, did I miss something?
