U.S. regulators have met to discuss imposing a record-setting fine against Facebook for privacy violations

Most Facebook users don’t know that it records a list of their interests, new study finds

Lawsuit reveals how Facebook profited off confused children: report

remember if some online service is free, it is highly likely that YOU are the product.

And very cynically and interestingly FB specifically told marketers (and who knows who else) that they could identify "insecure," "depressed," or "feeling useless" children and teens so they could be targeted.
