Does Facebook sell my information?

No, we don't sell your information. Instead, based on the information we have, advertisers and other partners pay us to show you personalized ads on the Facebook family of apps and technologies.
Keep in mind:
  • We can show you ads without telling advertisers who you are. We allow advertisers to tell us things like their business goal, and the kind of audience they want to see their ads. For example, we can help advertisers reach an audience of people between the ages of 25 and 34.
  • We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don't share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us permission.
    • For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madrid and likes software engineering) to help them better understand their audience. We also confirm which Facebook ads led you to make a purchase or take an action with an advertiser.
