They know far more about you than you can imagine:
FB collects more data about you than you know, it's shared more widely
than you know, legal protections are spotty, and malicious behavior
related to FB is on the rise:
Your current location and activity, among other things, can be picked up
and broadcast without your knowledge; stop using FB apps:
Breach of privacy extends to non-members of Facebook (and lots of other
Identity theft using off the shelf facial recognition software (keep
your profile private and take down that photo):
Until recently they did even worse until a lawsuit stopped some of it.
Their approach seems to be that they will infringe without telling you
until they are forced to stop.
