General News Here’s how you can find what Facebook knows about you
Advertisement
#1



Right from the time you create an account on Facebook, it collects every bit of information about you, be it your interests, the pages you like, political interests, links that you click on and much more. Not many are comfortable with the idea of Facebook knowing everything about you, but it’s a trade-off users have to make to continue using the social network and keep in touch with family and friends. While not many people know, in just a few clicks, you can actually see what Facebook knows about you.

For those wondering why Facebook wants to know more about you, the answer is simple – targeted advertising. Facebook will be using this data to decide what it shows to you, whereas the advertisers can choose its target audience based on this information.

There are three main ways Facebook learns about you – information you put such as your age, education and professional details, the way you use Facebook, and different ways the social network can track you even after you delete your account.

Coming back to the topic, Facebook has a tool called Ad Preferences. It allows you to look at most of the information the social network giant knows about you. On an ad in your News Feed, there is a small arrow pointing downwards, click on it, select “Why am I seeing this?” and then on “Manage Your Ad Preferences.” 

You’ll be surprised to know that despite liking few pages over the years, you may see anywhere between 100 to 500 or more preferences in a bunch of categories. While you can add new ones or delete the preferences that don’t apply, it won’t necessarily change the rate at which ads appear on your News Feed.
