Other social networks do this, don’t they?

Yes... and no... but with an important difference.

Other networks can store your photos, videos, check-ins, relationships etc but they make no promise to keep this data, either safe or private. Equally, these services are about the ‘here and now’ and not designed to look back on past events.

Additionally, if you’re not paying to use a social network, then you aren’t the customer, the advertisers are. And your data is helping shape the adverts that you are seeing.

Did this answer your question?
