Addressing the question about how it uses the collected data, Baser refuted that Facebook ever sells user data. So that figure would be multiplied by two. I have forged friendships with people through social media and I am in my job at Muscular Dystrophy UK because I direct messaged someone on Twitter to ask about opportunities. If not, the company claims the data does not get used to create a profile.

You can fix identity theft, but you can't fix the other bad stuff that can happen to your kids.
The bigger ideological problem with the Facebook circus is that our politicians are acting as if being subjected to an opinion - or an ad - they dislike is some kind of attack on an individual's rights. Even though the Facebook shares dipped Thursday morning, they are still up almost 3% since Zuckerberg entered the Senate on Tuesday.
Among the reasons I count Zuckerberg's appearance on Capitol Hill as mere theater is that he wasn't the only person who should have been testifying. At Facebook, the targeting and the core service seem inseparable.

For those of you who don't know me, I think Edward Snowden is a hero and did a huge service to the public for exposing the extent of mass surveillance. "I hope you'll fill me in on how that is consistent with protecting privacy".
