A little easier to understand data about what kind of information facebook collects about us: (including when you sleep, have sex or are in the toilet)
P.S. These Big-Data thieves – in which we can include Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twiter, Apple, Microsoft – have enough information about us that in the near future they are able to clone us in a virtual world, and we will have no right to forbid them from doing so!

I don’t know why, but I saw on https://www.security.org/ that facebook doesn’t collect certain data (Unique Identifiers), which is false, because after reading Facebook Data Policy I understood something completely different. In fact, it seems to me that other information about what data Facebook collects is omitted, which seems suspicious to me !
