Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook Is Not Selling User Data


As Facebook turns 15 next month, founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has once again defended the social media giant, saying the company is not selling its users' data to anyone.

"We don't sell people's data, even though it's often reported that we do", he wrote in an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. "Clickbait and other junk may drive engagement in the near term, but it would be foolish for us to show this intentionally, because it's not what people want," he said.

"Based on what pages people like, what they click on, and other signals, we create categories and then charge advertisers to show ads in that category. You have control over what information we use to show you ads, and you can block any advertiser from reaching you," Zuckerberg added.
