Facebook has said it can’t say whether the information it collects on people is related to their actions, but it can share that information with third parties who may want to use it to improve their businesses or make it more difficult for users.
The company has said that it collects and uses information about how users interact with content, such as when they click on a link or click a button.
It also says it may share that data with the companies that make it up.
But privacy advocates say that’s a false dichotomy.
“Facebook is selling your information, and you are the buyer,” said Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
“If you don’t buy, they don’t know who you are.”
But that’s not always the case.
Facebook has said the information about the people it’s talking to is collected only “in connection with the data the service is gathering for you.”
In a blog post published Wednesday, the company said it’s only collecting that information if there’s a good reason for doing so.
“We are collecting data about what you are doing on Facebook, what you look like, what pages you are on, and what you see when you visit your Facebook Page,” the company wrote.
“We can’t tell you what this information will be used for, what it will be shared with, or where it will end up.
The information we collect is entirely anonymous.
But the blog post also acknowledged that Facebook may use that information to improve its own advertising efforts.
“While we may share this information with companies and other entities, Facebook may also share this data with third party advertisers,” the blog said.
“In this case, we will use the data to serve ads that we believe you will find more relevant and more relevant to you.”
Facebook has also said that the data is used only to help improve its ad network.
Facebook is also required by law to keep track of how much of your information is being used, and to make it easier for people to remove unwanted ads from their Facebook pages.
