The Social Media giant knows a WHOLE LOT of information about its users...
Most of us understand that the online site has quite a lot of our personal details stored...but what does this really mean?
Well it might concern you to know that Mark Zuckerberg's pet project probably knows more about you than some of your closest friends and family members!
It might come as a bit of a shock, but you've probably been drip feeding websites like Google and Facebook your personal information for years.
Take a second and just think of all those lovely intimate photos you've uploaded to share with your online contacts...
Now think about your profile... it's got your 'birth date' in it right? How about your 'interests', 'likes' and 'dislikes'?
Catching our drift now?
Well before you get super stressed out and panic, there IS a solution.
Website ProPublica has released an app called 'What Facebook Thinks You Like'.
The clever site explains how Facebook collects information on you, based on what you 'share', 'like' and 'comment' on and then stores the data.
It turns out in fact, that Faceybees stores at least 98 PERSONAL DETAILS on us and allows other companies to use these to target their adverts at us!
So by downloading the app, you can now see exactly what information the brand has on you and can then go and delete this information from the site if you wish...which should make your life a little, ehem, more private!
