    Deleted my FB several months ago before all this controversy. Not sure why so many are surprised FB sells your data. Just about everyone does. People can't be this stupid..

    what is all the fuss about? Soon as your born your data has started to build up! Hospitals, doctors, schools, councils, gaming and .............................. So what is the point in moaning? You got something to hide?

    You a pedo, a terrorist ......... Its not like someone is going to come up to you in the street and say, ' Don't i know you? You like hairy bikers cooking program on BBC1.'
    If you want to advertise yourself on Facebook and look and act like a chav and expect it all your own way then carrying on being a dummy.

    Never been interested in any of the social media sites.I am not against them, some people do act normal, and why on earth should any of these sites give you a free ride? What would the overheads of Facebook cost for millions of people wanting to show themselves puking up outside a pub on a Friday night? Administration, servers, the whole concept is still a good idea, even if i am taking the piss.

    Crikey lets stop the moaning!

    One thought before I go! I watch a lot of true crime and wish that everybody that is born now on birth have their DNA taken and at a later age if looking problematic check to see they have a small medulla ( part of brain - serial killers ) :D

    I'm still amazed by how many people clearly don't get what the OP actually asked about, if people quit FB because of the influencing story that now is said to target up to 87 million users in a way that not even FB wanted to have it happen.

    OP - In light of all the recent events of Facebook claimed to collect data on its users and use that data for this and that, followed by hashtags to delete facebook, anyone actually deleted theirs ?

    Hope part of my answer was related to FB if the above was a dig at my comment :p

    Doesn't anyone remember a few years back when Mark Zuckerberg himself said that anyone willing to share their personal info on Facebook were "dumb f*ucks"?

    I've never had a facebook account, partially from privacy concerns, but mostly because I'm waaaay too ugly for social media :p

    Does not even opening the facebook app or visit facebook counts? It's basically just as good as deleted imo. :p

    Haven't used it for a few years now. I may open messenger app once or twice every couple weeks for some random family stuff.

    I deleted lifelog...I mean darpa...I mean facebook 2 years ago. When I realized I was just showing the government and big business my entire life for their sake, I decided to axe it.

    Never had facebook and never will, or anything like it, never understood the appeal of putting your private life up for all and sundry to gawk at.

    The collecting of data imo not so much of an issue, it's helpful for myself as i am able to keep in touch with relatives and friends from all around the world.
    As of late however i've been tempted to close it down due to trolls with an agenda, they've also introduced ad's halfway through videos.

    You don't mind an app actively watching your location at all times? You know facebook has geo-location trackers, so they can sell every store you go into your info.

    I like seeing adverts for Montblanc & Hugo Boss, nah that stuff doesn't bother me at all.
    What grinds my gears is the rampant disregard for ones self esteem and honour in either the comments section or feed.
    Like really? Here's a post from Linda that contains said persons picture, location and job title with a comment about how they think <insert ethnic group> are the cause of their problems.

    It's a breeding ground for hate these days imo, cat videos tend to balance it out however.

    And listening to everything you say. Your phone 'caches' everything it hears and the facebook app (and any other you approve) can download all that data whenever it chooses. If your phone can hear you, nothing you say is private.

    FB has been useful to me in connecting to long lost friends from my school days. Beyond that, its of no use to me.
