Facebook co-founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg prepares to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill April 11, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The "we don't sell data" party line was uttered several times during Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before Congress. Second: Facebook is collecting data from lot of places like the apps or websites that lets you log in using your Facebook details.

"I believe it is nearly certain that the number of Facebook users whose data was compromised through routes similar to that used by Kogan is much greater than 87 million; and that both Cambridge Analytica and other unconnected companies and campaigns were involved in these activities". The document that has been filed late on Friday, Facebook said it had spent $7.3 million in personal security costs and $1.5 million on personal use of private aircraft by Zuckerberg in 2017.

Google has its own Analytics service.

The findings follow days of allegations that data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica harvested data on millions of Facebook users without permission for political campaigning. Zuckerberg told him that Facebook already has a "download your information" tool that "allows people to see and to take out all of the information that Facebook - that they've put into Facebook or that Facebook knows about them".

In exchange, the website sends back the content on its site and instructions for the browser to send the user's request to the other companies providing content or services on the site. According to Baser, users can set News Feed preferences to see manage what content is seen first in their feeds, or what they want hidden altogether.

Zuckerberg also didn't rule out the possibility that Facebook might eventually offer a version giving people the option of paying a monthly fee in exchange for not having their personal information mined for advertising.
