Over the recent past - Cambridge Analytica have come under fire for their revelations about how they access our information and use it to their 'clients' advantage in helping the middle-grounders decide which way to vote, for example.
Every time you install an app on Facebook, you will see that it needs your permission to access certain data from your account, such as contacts, phone numbers and location etc. Without accepting these conditions, the app will not be installed. Most of which are needed for the app to work - but others are for data collection. This data is then collected by the app company and probably sold to companies like Cambridge Analytica for later use. This collected data can be used to target specific adverts at you, already knowing what you like, where you go and your email address.
While most people would expect Facebook to have data on how they use the apps, they're a little shocked to discover it has access to everything from all the contacts on their phone to a record of every text message they've ever sent or received, even if they don't use Facebook Messenger. But that's not all Facebook has. The information they collect can also contain the phone numbers of people who aren't even on Facebook!
Google knows where you have been, how long you have spent there and what road at what time of the day. I did a blog on this >>here<<.
