Most people, however, do not appreciate how the company snoops around and monitors what they do. The same can be said for the way Google and Microsoft collect and handle user data.

Opt out? Yeah, right. All you have to do is fill out 30 different multi-page forms, jump through fiery hoops, wrestle a bear, slay giants, tame a dragon, and navigate a 50-hectare corn maze in total darkness.

You can opt out of seeing ads targeted to your own interests on facebook, but by doing so you will get the same number of general interest ads. No way to remove them altogether.

Why aren't there Laws protecting us ?? No FB for me, but I know that my chromebook snoops, and I don't like it at all.

Best way to opt out is never opt in. No FB for me.
