Common Myths About Facebook
No, our ad targeting is done anonymously by our system, without sharing personally identifiable information with advertisers.
If an advertiser selects demographic targeting for their ads, our system automatically matches those ads to the appropriate audience. Advertisers only receive anonymous, aggregated reports to let them know that their ads were seen by the groups they targeted.
No, we don't sell any of your information to anyone and we never will.
You have control over how your information is shared, so we won't share your personal information with people or services who you don't want to have it. We don't give advertisers access to your personal information.
No. Facebook doesn't let you track who views your profile or your posts (ex: your photos). Third-party apps are also unable to do this.
If you come across an app that says it can show you who's viewing your profile or posts, please report the app.
No. An app or game should never force you to download something, fill out a survey, log in again, enter a promotion or take any other action to make you see something. The only thing that an app or game can require you to do to see something is like its Page.
If you believe an app or game is abusive, please report it.
