Over a billion people around the world agree: Facebook has become THE place to share your life with your friends and family online. Log in anytime and expect to see where your friends have been, what they have been doing, who they have been with plus tons of photos even interesting articles and news they want to share.

Facebook can, and does, look at every single click and post you make on its site. That's both to improve its services and to help its advertisers sell you more stuff. If you link Facebook with other online services, it also knows what you do there.
