Are You Concerned About The Information Facebook Has About You ?

Facebook is a great social platform if you want to stay in touch with friends and family, share photos, and see what other people are up to in their lives.

Now Facebook is free, of course, but there is a catch.

If you’re on Facebook, you’re giving Facebook information about yourself which it is selling to advertisers in one form or another.

I do not have a problem with this but you may be concerned that you would like to:

  • Close your Facebook account
  • Restrict what Facebook gives to advertisers

Here are some links to help you in not just knowing what Facebook knows about you but what you can do.
