We've explained how to download all the information Facebook has on you, a sensible precaution to take if you're planning to #DeleteFacebook. Or is it? During his testimony in front of a House committee on Wednesday, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that his company does track internet users who have not subscribed to Facebook. Once they did that, the company already had some data about that person's social circle and when one of the people in that user's contact information chose to create a Facebook account, friend suggestions are ready to be presented.
Baser goes on to say that Facebook uses the information it gets to provide various services to these sites or apps, including the manner in which such sites can show ads. This data trove gives Facebook unparalleled commercial power and, as is becoming increasingly clear, the ability to influence significant events, including national elections.
Rodgers said 9 percent of Facebook users have deleted their accounts and another one-third of users are using Facebook less following Zuckerberg's congressional hearings.
That means if Facebook were to establish a subscription service, there would be a two-tiered system where some pay for privacy and others pay with their data.
In addition, supposedly the company is investigating any application that had access to people's information before they prevented such access in 2014 which was something that had not happened prior to the Cambridge Analytica case.
"Facebook needs to reveal what it is doing with all of this information".
Online Purchase Sales Tax Fight Heads to SCOTUS

According to a joint report by AP and NBC News, the original data was collected by an academic researcher, Aleksander Kogan, through a personality quiz Facebook app called "This is Your Digital Life". The social network could tack on extra features, but social media experts are unsure what features would compel a user fork over cash.
That is one of the reasons why it is hard to truly remove oneself from Facebook.
Facebook and other social media platforms must do their part to make cyberspace a safer environment for users, but we must all change our way of thinking and do our part, for virtual terrorism is everyone's problem. "We require these security measures for the company's benefit because of the importance of Zuckerberg to Facebook", reads the filing. "Here is Facebook knowing this research and deliberately trying to get even younger kids to use their platform ... the last thing that kids need is to normalize this idea that relationships should take place online, that relationships should take place through a commercial product".
Facebook uses "all of the data that's in the user's personal profile", including public and private posts, photos, videos, likes, contacts and even messages, according to Rodgers. In the US & Canada Facebook earned $19.9 billion in 2017 from 239 million users.
